On the rainy evening of July 22, a taxi (MLS 7482) rammed into the car of the Editor of this weekly near the State Bank Regional Office at Dhankheti, and left the vehicle completely battered. The Editor who was t the wheel, had a providential escape suffering only fractures of the teeth and some bleeding injuries.

The accident occurred at 7:30 P.M. when the taxi, approaching from opposite direction, suddenly swerved and his the car near the driving seat. There was no other vehicle on the road at that time.

The cabinet left the taxi on the middle of the road and disappeared from the scene. Police promptly arrived at the spot and towed the involved vehicles to the Police Station.

Curiously, till the time of sending these lines to the Press, neither the driver surrendered before the police nor anyone came to claim ownership of the taxi.

Police said that according to records available with them the owner is a resident of Nongspung in West Khasi Hills. Police have so far not sent any intimation to him hoping that he would appear on his own.

Meanwhile, it is reported that the taxi is being operated by an employee of the Public Health Engineering Department as a “benami trade”. There is, however, no confirmation of the report.
