Meghalaya | Civilians hijacking toll collection case: Assam businessman rubbishes allegations

TURA | Jan 07:

One of the civilians alleged of being involved in hijacking the toll collection at DMR and Transport gates allegedly on the orders of a certain NPP minister in Dainadubi in North Garo Hills, Lilu Sharma (a businessman from Assam) has rubbished the allegations terming them as "baseless and false".

In his clarification letter issued to the media today, Lilu Sharma has expressed shock after his name appeared alongside three other civilians accused of being involved in the illegal act. "My name has been unnecessarily entangled in the incident. I am not at all involved in the alleged incident," he said.

He informed that he was not associated with coal business directly or indirectly or in any manner for the past eight years. "Hence my name featuring in the news reports is nothing but to malign my reputation and prestige before the public," Sharma added.

Furthermore, he clarified that he has not visited Dainadubi in NGH for the last two years and therefore the question of his involvement in the issue does not arise.

"On the day of the incident, neither I was present on the spot of the incident — Dainadubi not Dudhnoi in Goalpara, Assam. As a matter of fact, I was stationed at Guwahati for some urgent work," he clarified.

Meanwhlile, condemning the incident, Sharma requested the state government to initiate stringent action against the culrpits involved in the issue.
