Shillong, May 9: Suspended police official GK Iangrai has filed a complaint with the Sadar Police Station on Thursday against Meghalaya DGP LR Bishnoi for the alleged ‘misuse and tampering’ of his vehicle registration number plate.

However, when asked, the DGP said the vehicle was “duly requisitioned as approved by the govt for official use’.



The FIR of former Assistant Inspector General (AIG) comes as Bishnoi is set to retire on May 19.

Iangrai  sought action against the members of the Inquiry Committee into the matter.

He was arrested on November 2, 2022 for allegedly misappropriating funds sanctioned for the construction of the Nationwide Emergency Response System (NERS) building in Shillong.

The FIR  of Iangrai is reproduced below 

The Officer-Incharge

Shillong Sadar, Police Station

Shillong, Meghalaya

Subject Misuse and Tampering of Registration Number  of the vehicle in the use of Shri Lajja Ram Bishnoi,  the Director General of Police, Meghalaya.


“I have the honour to bring to your kind notice that the “Enquiry Committee” constituted vide Letter No. ADG/L&O/ F-33/2022/1 dated 18th July 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”.

The said Report appears to have been prepared in an easy chair i.e to say without making an on the spot inquiry and cross checking the record of the Transport Department.

As per a letter under Right to information (RTI) vide letter No. DTO/S/193 dated 27.07.2023 about the said vehicle i.e Verna 1.6 VTVT is registered with the Transport Department, Government of Meghalaya, Shillong, as ML-02-A-0001, in the name of the Director General of Police Government of Meghalaya, Shillong.

The aforesaid information under the RTI by the Transport Department Government of Meghalaya nails down the said Report of the Inquiry Committee, which calls for necessary action against the members of the Committee.

The another aspect of the matter is really intriguing as would be evident from the following facts:-

Shri Lajja Ram Bishnoi, who is holding the chair of the Director General of Police, Meghalaya, came to Shillong, to join his present posting on 17th May 2022 in a white Kia Carnival Limousine model vehicle which was having Registration of Government of Assam, but thereafter, it appears Shri Lajja Ram Bishnoi, in an act of Criminal Conspiracy, changed the Number Plate of the vehicle and now he is putting a new Number Plate bearing Registration Number ML-02-A-0001, which number is Registered for the aforesaid vehicle Verna 1.6 VTVT.

It has further been learnt that the said white Kia Carnival Limousine is requisitioned vehicle, for the purpose, best known to Shri Lajja Ram Bishnoi, but he is using the same for his personal use, as would be evident from the Photographs of the use and his presence in the vehicle.

As per the Rules and Standard Guidelines, the Director General of Police Government of Meghalaya, Shillong is entitled to use a vehicle within the range of Rs.12,00,000/= (Rupees Twelve Lakhs) only, while the said vehicle cost almost Rs. 40,00,000/=(Rupees Forty Lakhs) only, to which the Director General of Police Government of Meghalaya, Shillong is not entitled.

All these facts stated above points out only to the Offence of Criminal Conspiracy and Criminal Breach of Trust as well as Forgery and cheating committed by Shri Lajja Ram Bishnoi.

I, therefore, request you to register the case against the accused persons mentioned above under appropriate Section of Law and prosecute him accordingly to ensure that he is punished for the same.

I am enclosing herewith Photographs as stated above relevant portion of the Inquiry Committee Report and the RTI Letter for your perusal and necessary action.

Thanking You

Dated: Shillong


Yours Faithfully,
