Shillong, May 5: The saga of allegations and counter allegations between money lenders and borrowers continued today.
A day after one Rosita Lyngdoh Nongbri was accused of abducting a woman who had taken loan from her, the alleged “victims” claimed that the money lender pressurized them to repay the loan amount with a high rate on interest.
As per the version of Elizabeth Rynjah, on May 2, Nongbri had forcefully asked her to get inside the vehicle in the presence of her husband.
According to Rynjah, she was forcibly taken to Nongbri’s home in Mawlai Nonglum alone wherein she was asked to sign a blank paper under duress.
However, Rynjah claimed that she rejected to sign on the paper.
Rynjah, however, admitted that she did borrowed an amount of Rs 30,000 from Nongbri in the month of March, and not Rs 4.40 lakh as alleged by the latter.
“According to our terms of agreement, Nongbri had agreed on an interest rate of Rs 9000 per month which was 30 percent of the principal amount,” Rynjah said.
However, she alleged that Nongbri went back on the terms of the agreement by pressurising Rynjah to pay the interest rate every week. She informed the media that she had already paid Rs 36,000 as interest rate.
Another woman Babika Nongrum of Nongmynsong alleged that she too was a victim of Nongbri and her sister, Renu Nongbri.
