Shillong: Law enforcers have arrested five
persons for illegally collecting money from coal trucks on national highway 62 in Meghalaya, an official said Monday.

One Prodeep Momin was arrested yesterday at Jamgaon
Sorokpara in East Garo Hills district while he was collecting
money from trucks with fake documents, while two of his
accomplices fled, deputy commissioner Pravin Bakshi said.

Earlier, four persons have been arrested on the highway
for similar crime this month as authorities stepped up their
crackdown on the menace.

The DC said coal monopoly markets at Rongjeng and Dobu
have been stopped, while a weigh bridge and a parking lot on
the highway closed down.
