Police examine HDR, family and five sex workers
SHILLONG: The Marvelene’s Inn at Rilbong, run by the family of Home Minister HDR Lyngdoh, was habitually used as a den for sexual activities, as per the investigation by police.
A police source said after examining the manager of the guest house and also from call records, police found that at least five sex workers were frequent visitors to the hotel.
Recently, police examined the Home Minister, his wife, son, manager and the receptionist of the Inn, besides five sex workers.
Police secured the contact numbers of the sex workers from the call records of the manager of the guest house.
Recently, the Home Minister had pleaded ignorance about what was happening in the guest house though the POCSO Act makes it mandatory to report to the police about illegal activities in the Inn.
Soon after a 14-year-old girl filed a complaint of sexual exploitation with the Laban police station on December 16 last, only a waiter at Marvelene’s Inn, identified as Usha Deb Barman, was arrested till date while as many as 16 persons involved in the crime are in custody.
It was on January 8 that TUR and CSWO had filed an FIR holding those who run the guest house accountable for the crime. However, no one was arrested based on the FIR filed by the pressure groups.
