“Implementation of Meghalaya Police Act to curb nuisance”
The Meghalaya Police Act, 2010 (Act No. 7 of 2011) effective from 4th February, 2011 empowered the Police to enable it to function as an efficient, effective, people-friendly, impartial, transparent, honest, professional, accountable and responsive agency. Prior to this Act, the Police were equipped with the Police Act, 1861 where the punishment for violation was meagre Rs. 50/- (Rupees fifty) only and as a result it did not act as a deterrent to the violators of the law.
With the new Act, Sadar Police Station has very effectively using the various provisions of this Act and during the month of August-2015, they have registered 34(thirty four) Non-FIR cases, arrested 71(seventy one) violators and forwarded them to the competent Court and on conviction, an amount of Rs. 1,77,000/- (Rupees one lakh seventy seven thousand) was realised by the Court as fine from the different cases. Notable features of this Act is that the perpetrator of the crime is, on conviction by the court, liable to a fine of Rs. 5,000/- and on subsequent conviction, fine of Rs. 10,000/-.
All Police Station in Shillong City have been directed to utilise the Act effectively to check drunken driving, drinking in public places, drunken brawls and committing of nuisance in public places.

One person namely Kaster Jassa 29yrs who was seen with the suspected buyer was followed from Laitumkhrah Bazar and apprehended at Laitumkhrah bus stand near Police Point . On his revelation, it was confirmed  about the supply of drugs by Inderjit Singh 40 yrs of Lamsang Imphal West Manipur. At about 7.30pm, the ANTF conducted  a search and seizure operation at Lumawrie in the rented  house of one Indrajit Singh .  When the team  entered the house, one  Shymashon Sharma 36 yrs of Hojai, Rajbari Nagaon was caught  red handed while consuming (chasing) heroin with a snorting pipe in the  adjacent room. A small amount of heroin was  seized from the buyer Kaster Jasa   However a substantial amount of heroin was found from the house which was packed in several containers, which weighed, 29 gms whose  value is   Rs 2.90 lakhs. Several empty containers including plastic bottles were found having traces of heroin were recovered and seized indicating that these were the containers used to traffic the drugs. Amongst other things seized are chasing pipes for snorting heroin, 15 lighters used for chasing, a bundle of transparent plastic  sachets for packing the heroin and 7 mobile phones. On further search,  a  well wrapped packet  was found from the almirah in one of the rooms  which contained  three pads of the demand note  letter heads of the National Revolutionary Front of Manipur(NRFM) a militant outfit active in Manipur which is issued by the Secretary Finance NRFM which  is purported to be used in Manipur. This indicates their links with militant groups. They have admitted to be deserters of the Peoples Liberation Army(PLA), a militant outfit of Manipur.
