The Meghalaya High Court has directed the Home Department to initiate appropriate disciplinary proceedings against suspended MPS officer Gabriel K. Iangrai in connection with the police vehicle scam.
“It is hoped that appropriate disciplinary proceedings would be initiated against the relevant person in due course,” the division bench of the High Court said in an order passed today on a PIL filed by Riewwad V. Warjri.
During the hearing, the State government told the court that Iangrai is now in judicial custody and permission has also been granted by the State government for two further complaints to be lodged against him.
The State government also informed the court that the bank accounts of Iangrai have been frozen and a plea has been made under Section 105 of the Criminal Procedure Code before the Sessions Judge.
The High Court has listed the matter for hearing on March 9.
