The departmental proceedings by the Police Department against suspended MPS officer Gabriel K. Iangrai is going on.
The next hearing of the departmental proceeding will be held on February 13 for supply of additional documents, as sought for by Iangrai.
This was stated by the State government in its affidavit filed before the division bench of the Meghalaya High Court today.
Iangrai’s lawyer P Yobin also told the High Court that the entire department proceedings are on the right path.
Iangrai was arrested on November 2, 2022 after the alleged diversion of funds in the construction of the National Emergency Response System (NERS) building at Sadar police station in Shillong.
Subsequently, the State government has suspended him from service and frozen his bank accounts.
Iangrai was also accused of misuse of authority and other allegations in the purchase of vehicles in the Police Headquarter here when he was the Assistant Inspector of Police (Administration).
A report of the fact-finding team of the police headed by Inspector General of Police (Law and Order) M K Singh said that a total of 29 vehicles were in the personal custody of Iangrai before April 2022 without any orders from the competent authority.
