Shillong, Sept 15: Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K. Sangma on Wednesday informed the Assembly that Vicky Dey, who is wanted for allegedly spreading hate videos about the people of Meghalaya,  is still untraceable.

Replying to a Call Attention Motion on a news item about Vicky Dey, Sangma said in September 2020 an FIR was filed at Lumdiengjri Police station against Vicky Dey for circulating videos which could incite communal tensions between the tribals and non-tribals.

In the video, Dey had alleged that some NGOs are forcing non-tribals to shut down their shops in Ichamati.

Investigation in Dey’s case

According to Sangma, the FIR filed against Dey was registered and transferred to Shella Police station and investigated.

In October 2020, two more individuals filed a complaint against Vicky Dey, Prontush Sarkar, Mridul Das and Binayak Roy for circulating false information with intention to cause breach and misleading Governor and Prime Minister’s Office.

Sangma said that the case was registered and investigated and, during the investigation, a look out notice was issued to SP of North Goa and South as it was suspected that the accused is hiding there but Goa police informed that the accused could not be traced.

In addition, a look out notice was also issued to Commissioner of Police, Kolkata. SP (CID) Meghalaya has has also sent look out notice to all the states.

MLA questions police inaction against Dey

Earlier, while calling the attention motion, Umroi  legislator, George B. Lyngdoh said that it’s nearly one year since the FIR was filed against Dey, who spread hate videos that speaks ill about the citizens of Meghalaya.

Stating that the hate videos of Dey are serious violation of freedom of speech and expression, the MLA also slammed Meghalaya police for its inaction on the FIR, while adding that such inaction would only encourage Dey to spread more hate videos.

Earlier, Sangma also took note of the MLA criticising police saying that it is not fair for the MLA to criticize police department as they are making huge sacrifices to keep the citizens safe.
