No information on drugs in army vehicles but will comply with court order: Meghalaya minister


Shillong: Following allegations by the Meghalaya High Court that drug trucks are sometimes transported in military trucks after a surprise inspection of army vehicles, Interior Minister Lahkmen Rymbui said on Tuesday that the government was currently conducting a study. Has been and is trying to work on initiatives.

Rymbui said that after receiving the order of the High Court, the Chief Minister was studying the order with the Home Minister.

“So far, it is premature to respond to this issue. But in the interest of the state, we do not want such illegal activities to enter the state. It is the duty of the state to stop the scourge of drugs,” he said.

Asked if this was a serious concern in the face of such allegations, Rymbui said he had no information but that following the High Court’s order, it was the government’s duty to ensure strict action.

Regarding the inspection of vehicles with ML01 number plates (registered state government vehicles), Rymbui said he was unaware of such claims but assured that if the illegal consignment was being transported. Appropriate action will be taken, regardless of any government or private vehicle. The law should be obeyed and action should be taken against such people.
