Itanagar: The Arunachal Pradesh Police on Monday denied reports that several truckers belonging to a particular community were beaten up in State, following which they fled to neighbouring Assam.

Terming the report that drivers and handymen of a particular community are fleeing the State, especially Kurung Kumey district as “rubbish and without any iota of truth”, Inspector General of Police Chukhu Appa said that no passenger vehicles are plying now.

The Deputy Commissioner of Kurung Kumey district Kento Riba said on Monday that a truck had hit a parked SUV at Sangram on Saturday that led to altercation between both the drivers, which, he said was given a different colour by some officials.

An officer of the Civil Supply department in a letter to the DC on Sunday informed that truck drivers and handymen of a particular community were beaten up between Sangram and Palin by a few youth forcing them to flee to Assam.
