SHILLONG, MAY 9: Former Assistant Inspector General (AIG) of Meghalaya Police GK Iangrai on Thursday filed an FIR against Meghalaya Director General of Police (DGP) Lajja Ram Bishnoi for allegedly misuse and tampering of registration number plate of his vehicle.


In the FIR, the former AIG said that the Enquiry Committee constituted dated July 18, 2022, in its report contained in Para 1 of page 3, states as follows: “One Hyndai Verna which is parked at Central Workshop has been allotted a fake number and no Registration of the vehicle was done by AIG-A, since no documents are available”.


He said that the said report appears to have been prepared in any easy chair i.e to say without making an on the spot inquiry and cross checking the record of the transport department.


As per a letter under Right to Information (RTI) dated July 27, 2023 about the said vehicle i.e Verna 1.6 VTVT is registered with the transport department, government of Meghalaya, Shillong as ML-02-A-0001, in the name of the Director General of Police, government of Meghalaya.


“The aforesaid information under the RTI by the transport department, government of Meghalaya, nails down the said report of the Inquiry Committee, which calls for necessary action against the members of the Committee,” Iangrai said.


Further in the FIR, the former AIG said that the another aspect of the matter is really intriguing as would be evident from the following facts: “Lajja Ram Bishnoi, who is holding the chair of the Director General of Police, Meghalaya, came to Shillong, to join his present posting on May 17, 2022 in a white Kia Carnival Limousine model vehicle, which was having registration of Government of Assam, but thereafter, it appears Lajja Ram Bishnoi, in an act of criminal conspiracy, changed the number plate of the vehicle and now he is putting a new number plate bearing registration number ML-02-A-0001, which number is registered for the aforesaid vehicle Verna 1.6 VTVT.”


He said it has further been learnt that the said white Kia Carnival Limousine is requisitioned vehicle, for the purpose, best known to Lajja Ram Bishnoi, but he is using the same for his personal use, as would be evident from the photographs of the use and his presence in the vehicle.


The former AIG said that as per the Rules and Standard Guidelines, the Director General of Police Government of Meghalaya, Shilling is entitled to use a vehicle within the range of Rs 12 lakh only, while the said vehicle cost almost Rs 40 lakhs only, to which the DGP, Government of Meghalaya is not entitled.


“All these facts stated above point out only to the Offence of Criminal Conspiracy and Criminal Breach of Trust as well as Forgery and cheating committed by Lajja Ram Bishnoi. I, therefore, request you to register the case against the accused persons mentioned above under appropriate section of law and prosecute him accordingly to ensure that he is punished for the same,” he stated in the FIR.
