SHILLONG, Jan 11: Coming clean regarding his involvement in raping a 14 year old girl, Mawhati legislator, Julius Dorphang has confessed to his crime before police.
“He (Dorphang) has been cooperating with the investigation team. He has admitted his involvement in the crime,” East Khasi Hills District SP (City) Vivek Syiem said here on Wednesday.
The independent legislator from Mawhati was remanded to five days police custody soon after his arrest from an Inter-State Bus Terminus (ISBT) at Gorchuk in Guwahati, Assam on Saturday last week.
“His remand to five days police custody will end tomorrow (Thursday),” Syiem said while informing that police will accordingly produce the arrested MLA before the city court.
There is no indication on the part of the investigation team to pray for more days custody of the rape accused.
Asked, the SP said, “We will immediately file our charge sheet against him at the earliest.”
At least two cases have been registered against the former HNLC chairman for his alleged involvement in raping the girl in areas falling under Laitumkhrah police station and Ri Bhoi District.
