Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K. Sangma on Wednesday informed the Assembly that the state police have done their best to track one Vicky Dey and some others, who tried to spread hatred and poor image of the State and incite communal tension between tribals and non-tribals.

Sangma said that despite the hard work of the police, they are yet to arrest Dey as he has been absconding.

Replying to a calling attention motion moved by opposition member George B. Lyngdoh of the Congress, Sangma said the state police have filed an FIR against Dey at Shillong Sadar Police Station to investigate into the matter.

In the video, Dey had alleged that some NGOs are forcing non-tribals to shut down their shops in Ichamati. Sangma said the FIR filed against him was registered and transferred to Shella Police station and investigation was carried out.

Look-out notices were also issued to the Superintendent of Police of North Goa and South Goa as it was suspected that Dey had been hiding there but Goa police informed that the accused could not be traced, Sangma said.

The Chief Minister said that the lookout notices have been sent to Lal Bazar Police Headquarters in Kolkata, adding that the State Superintendent of Police (CID) Meghalaya has also sent look out notices to all the states of the country, even as he informed that the states were yet to respond.

In October 2020, two more individuals filed a complaint against Vicky Dey, Prontush Sarkar, Mridul Das and Binayak Roy for circulating false information with intention to cause breach and misleading Governor and Prime Minister’s Office, Sangma informed. “I can assure that we will do everything in our capacity to ensure that we reach to the logical conclusion of this particular case,” the Chief Minister told the House.

The Chief Minister rejected the allegation of incompetency of the state police and criticised the Opposition member for painting a poor image of the police, who, he said, needed to be appreciated for their hard work.

Earlier, while moving the calling attention motion, Lyngdoh said that it was nearly one year since an FIR had been lodged against Dey who has allegedly spread hate videos that speak ill against the people and insult the leaders of the State.
