New Delhi: A woman police official of Assam who hit the headlines a few months earlier for getting hold of an MLA has now arrested her fiancé on charges of cheating. Junmoni Rabha, the sub-inspector of Nagaon district only after her engagement learned that he is an alleged fraudster.
The accused identified as Rana Pogag was arrested based on the FIR filed by Junmoni. Besides, he was produced before the court and the court and court remanded him in two-day police custody.
According to the reports, Junmoni was in a relationship with the accused of over a year and got engaged to him last October.
Rana Pogag falsely claimed himself to be a Public Relations Officer of the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) and duped people with lakhs of rupees by promising them jobs at the respected organisation. “When the accused first met Junmoni, he identified himself as an ONGC officer. They were supposed to get married in November but Junmoni learned he duped some people by promising to give them jobs and contracts in the ONGC,” a police officer told journalists.

“She had checked his bag and recovered some fake seals and documents of the ONGC. So, she lodged an FIR with us. We registered a case and arrested him,” the officer added.
Junmoni along with her team seized 11 fake seals of ONGC and many incriminating documents including fake identity cards from Pogag’s home.
“After engagement, I went back to my place of posting. He lied by stating he got posted in (southern Assam’s) Silchar. When he was not reporting for duty, I had asked for the reasons but he asked me if I wanted him to live away from me,” said Junmoni.
In January this year, her telephonic conversation with Bihpuria MLA Amiya Kumar Bhuyan got leaked on social media, triggering brouhaha. The MLA asked her along with another Assam cop not to harass the people of his constituency who heavily rely on boats for movement. However, she did not hold back and asked how despite being an elected representative, could ask the police to “break rules and regulations.”
