STAFF CORRESPONDENT

SHILLONG, Feb 9: After failing to b the alleged rapist teacher in multiple places, the Police is looking at an option to move before the court to proclaim the accused ‘as an absconder’ after charge-sheeting him. Konesshon Rodborn is a resident of Mawsynram and teaches in Tlong Umiam Secondary School under Sohiong constituency. He is alleged of raping his own school student and for making unwanted advance on another pupil.

Police effort to b him has been proving to be futile even as the alleged victim has testified the perpetrator misdeeds. The Superintendent of Police (City) Vivek Syiem told The Sentinel, “Investigation is on and the alleged accused evading police investigation will only invite him with more trouble”.

Usually, the Procedure adopted by the department on an absconder of heinous crime is to charge sheet him and move the court for proclamation of attachment of property, stated Syiem while adding that the case is serious in ture. The SP said that the options are well in the thoughts to bring the accused teacher within the ambit of the law.
