Man arrested for impersonating as IB officer to dupe job seekers

SHILLONG, MAY 25: A 39-year-old man was arrested for impersonating as an IB Officer of the Ministry of Home Affairs and duping job seekers.

Richard Tiplang Swer of Wahingdoh has been arrested and will be forwarded to court, SP (City) Vivek Syiem said on Thursday.

One Bolero (ML-05-Z-3007) with siren and VIP blinker, mobile, laptop and incriminating papers have been seized from his house at Wahingdoh, the SP said.

Two cases have been registered against Swer at Mawlai police station and Lumdiengjri police station respectively.

Syiem said the complaint received on May 16 informed that Swer, who was claiming to be an IB Officer of the Ministry of Home Affairs offered to provide jobs in the Secretariat, Shillong through MPSC and DSC and told the complainant to collect an amount from all the persons interested according to their qualifications.

The complainant collected an amount of Rs 80 lakh from 38 persons since last one year and paid the amount to him but evaded the complainant when the same was not fulfilled.

Furthermore, another FIR was received at Lumdiengjri PS on May 22, where the same person impersonated himself as an officer of the Police Special Branch and told the complainant that he can provide jobs in the Police Department under the condition that the applicants pays an amount of Rs 1 lakh for Non-Matriculate and Rs 50,000 for Matriculate.

The complainant informed the same to his friends and one of his friends handed over an advance amount of Rs 50,000 to the person through his driver at Motphran, Shillong in the month of March, 2023.

Meanwhile, police said that anyone who has been duped by the impersonator are requested to lodge an FIR at the nearest Police Station.

MSL 2023: Rangdajied take back Group B top spot

MSL 2023: Rangdajied take back Group B top spot

Shillong, May 25: Rangdajied United took one step closer to the semifinals of the Meghalaya State League 2023 with a 3-0 victory over Rymbai Iawpynsing in Group B at the Kiang Nangbah Stadium in Jowai today.

Oresterwell Langshiang scored what must be the fastest goal in MSL history, with two more strikes in the second half giving back first place in the group to Rangdajied; tied at the top with Ladthadlaboh on 10 points each, RUFC are in front on goal difference (+11 to +9). The second half goals were provided by Aibiangmame Nongneng (70′) and Wansiewdor Nengnong (81′).

It all began in perfect fashion for Rangdajied as they scored with only around 15 seconds on the clock. An incredible start saw the match kicked off by Rangdajied, with the ball lobbed forwards to Tremiki Lamurong on the right. His cross went to Nengnong, who then passed it on to Langshiang, with the diminutive No. 20 scoring past the goalkeeper’s outstretched leg.

Rymbai were unable to even get a touch on the ball before going behind but they shook that off and lifted their game enough not to let Rangdajied score any further in the first 45 minutes but they were largely confined to their own half.

Resistance continued to frustrate Rangdajied, who had to wait until the 70th minute before they scored their second goal, with Nongneng, who came on as a substitute at the start of the second half, getting up above his marker and heading in a cross by captain Knerktilang Buam following a short corner.

Top of the group was confirmed roughly 10 minutes later when, after Bansuklang Bina’s first attempt was blocked by Rymbai goalkeeper Christopher Lyngdoh, Nengnong stepped in to score off the rebound.

Correction: Yesterday’s result from Jowai should have read 3-0 in favour of Ladthadlaboh against Mulait United. Stephanson Pale (40’P, 60′) scored a brace and Nickyboy Swer (46′) one goal for Ladthadlaboh.

Tomorrow’s fixtures:
Group A, Shillong – Jyntru vs Umkseh, 3pm
Group B, Jowai – Youth Club Pdengkarong vs Ladthadlaboh, 2:30pm
Group C, Mawkyrwat – Mawten vs Seven United, 3pm
Group D, Tura – Warima Youth Club vs Atong Matgrik, 3pm
