Coal-laden truck overturns at Umling-Narang road

NONGPOH: In violation of the Section 144 CrPC order issued by Ri Bhoi district administration prohibiting coal-laden trucks from plying through other routes other than the designated National Highway 6, a coal laden truck overturned on the Umling-Narang road on Sunday.
The district administration had on May 21 this year issued the prohibition order against plying of coal-laden trucks through Nongpoh-Umden road via Byrnihat, Umsning-Jagi road, Umrit-Narang road, Umling-Narang road and Mairang-Ranibari road in Ri Bhoi.
The order has been imposed as some of the illegal coal-laden trucks divert their routes with an intention to evade the mandatory weighing process at the Integrated Check Gate located at Narang village.
