Adelbert to attend court hearing today

SHILLONG: Former KHADC CEM Adelbert Nongrum has said that he will be present during the hearing of a contempt of court plea against him on Monday.
Nongrum, who has been on indefinite hunger strike since Saturday demanding the state government’s nod to the Village Administration Bill, 2014 which was passed by the KHADC earlier, however, said that he is clueless as far as the reason for summon is concerned.
The Meghalaya High Court recently directed Nongrum to be present during the hearing of a contempt of court plea against him on Monday.
A division bench comprising Chief Justice Uma Nath Singh and TNK Singh also directed police to ensure the appearance of Nongrum in person during the hearing.
“We will ensure that he is present in the court tomorrow,” East Khasi Hills district police chief M Kharkrang said on Sunday.
Nongrum was dragged to court after having made a reportedly derogatory statement earlier this year against the court thereby lowering its image.
The Shillong police have made elaborative security arrangements for Monday’s all important hearing.
