Meghalaya police Friday registered case of kidnapping and assault of an accused in the Shillong Jail break.
Sankyntiewlang Decruze who was released on bail on July 26 claimed that he was abducted by armed miscreants at gunpoint on his way home on August 3, but barely managed to escape.
On hearing the alleged abduction and assault of Decruze, the Steering Committee Against Murder of Democracy (SCAMOD) filed an FIR against the alleged abduction and murder attempt before Superintendent of Police AR Mawthoh.
“We have registered a case of kidnapping and assault and we are inquiring into the case,” Mawthoh said. Earlier, Decruze had testified before the D Biswas commission and accused union minister of state for water resource, Vincent H Pala and Thomas Nongtdu, a congress leader of masterminding the May 31 last year Shillong jailbreak.
Pala had earlier denied the accusation and said he was willing to testify before any judicial probe on the jailbreak.
According to Decruze who escaped from the Shillong district jail along with Fullmoon Dhar, the slain ringleader of the jailbreak, told the Biswas Commission: “high-profile politicians and businessmen financed the jailbreak.”
Incidentally, Fullmoon Dhar was killed in a “fake” police encounter two days after the jail break, while others escapees were nabbed by police in Jaintia Hills district.
“We suspect that police who were involved in the fake encounter of Fullmoon Dhar are also involved in this case,” SCAMOD Convener, Agnes Kharshiing said.
The NGOs were demanding for a fair probe into the jailbreak and arrest of those behind Decruse’s abduction and attempted murder.
Meanwhile, the government was yet to appoint a new judge top probe the jailbreak case following Justice Biswas quitting days before submitting his finding in the jailbreak.
Chief Minister Mukul Sangma assured the assembly that the government would not waste time in completing the probe into infamous Shillong jailbreak.
SCAMOD which had been fighting for justice in the case had cast aspersions in the sudden resignation of Justice Biswas.
