Meghalaya government is ‘studying’ High Court order to check army vehicles on drug trafficking charges


The Meghalaya government is “studying” the High Court’s order to check army vehicles for alleged drug trafficking.

The announcement was made by Meghalaya Home Minister Lahkmen Rymbui.

The Meghalaya High Court had recently ordered a surprise check of army vehicles following allegations of drug trafficking in military trucks.

Meghalaya Home Minister Lahkmen Rymbui said the state government was studying and trying to take steps to comply with the recent High Court order.

The Meghalaya Home Minister said that he and Chief Minister Konrad Sangma were “studying” the order and taking action.

“It is too early to comment on this. However, we do not want any such illegal activity in the state,” said Lahkmen Rymbui , Meghalaya’s interior minister.

Rymbui added that at present the Meghalaya government has no information about the alleged transport of drugs in army vehicles.

The Meghalaya High Court recently issued an order directing the army to deploy teams of flying army checkers to conduct a surprise inspection of its vehicles.
Rymbui added that the Meghalaya government was unaware of any information regarding drug trafficking in VIP vehicles.
