 SHILLONG: Two traffic police personnel have been summoned to appear before the Assembly Privilege Committee on December 20 after they refused to allow Ronnie V Lyngdoh, Chairman of the Privilege Committee and sitting MLA, to park his vehicle near Don Bosco Square adjacent to St. Anthony’s School recently.

A police source informed on Saturday that after a traffic police constable posted at the Laitumkhrah Police Station had issued a slip to the legislator for parking his vehicle in a no parking zone two weeks back, the latter reacted and issued a notice on Friday asking the constable S Thapa and DSP (City) Cherry Shadap to appear before the Committee.

According to sources, the legislator who was with his wife had asked the constable to allow him to park his vehicle at that place for some time as they were going to see a doctor. However, the police constable issued the slip saying that he had no other option.

Lyngdoh introduced himself as a legislator but the constable conveyed to him that he has to go by the rule.

Lyngdoh was not available for comments.
