Shillong: Meghalaya Director General of Police (DGP) Lajja Ram Bishnoi has filed a petition before the Meghalaya High Court seeking quashing of the FIR filed by suspended cop GK Iangrai against him for using a fake number plate.

On May 9, former Assistant Inspector General (AIG) of Meghalaya Police GK Iangrai filed an FIR against DGP Lajja Ram Bishnoi for allegedly misuse and tampering of registration number plate of his vehicle.

It was registered under Sections 409 (criminal breach of trust), 467 (forgery), 471 (using as genuine a forged document), and 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), along with section 192 of the Motor Vehicles Act.

The DGP in his petition has alleged that FIR is not maintainable and that it should be set aside and quashed.

He claimed that the FIR was nothing but vengeance and grudge against him since the suspended police office had faced action during his tenure.

In the FIR, the former AIG said that the Enquiry Committee constituted dated July 18, 2022, in its report contained in Para 1 of page 3, states as follows: “One Hyndai Verna which is parked at Central Workshop has been allotted a fake number and no Registration of the vehicle was done by AIG-A, since no documents are available”.
