A police officer in Meghalaya has been transferred for allegedly offending Home Minister H.D.R Lyngdoh by arresting a bootlegger hailing from his constituency.
B.C Shadap, the Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Umroi police station was served the transfer order on March 3 last directed to assume duty in Tura despite strong opposition from the local people.
Sources said police officer earned the Home Minister’s ire after he went ahead to register a case against a bootlegger.
The bootlegger hails from Lyngdoh’s constituency, Sohiong, the place known for producing illicit liquor.
Meanwhile, around 56 villages in the area submitted a memorandum to the Home Minister last month appealing against Shadap’s transfer from Umroi.
Earlier, CSWO and Meghalaya Humanity Social Organisation (MHSO) had blamed Lyngdoh of creating hindrance during the duty of police and demanded his resignation.
The NGOs also alleged that the minister through his personal secretary had directed the OC not to register any case against the illicit liquor trader.
