Shillong, July 29 (IANS) A Meghalaya Police officer, accused of raping a school girl here, surrendered before a local court Friday, police said.

Sub-Inspector S.N. Roy, who had dodged the police, appeared before the court of Judicial Magistrate M.B. Challam, much to the surprise of police, who have been on his trail since April.

The court remanded Roy to 14 days’ judicial custody. The Shillong police would move the court Aug 1 for his police custody.

“We were constantly trailing him and kept questioning his relatives. Our pressure was too much for him to handle and therefore, he surrendered in the court,” city police chief M.Kharkrang told IANS.

Roy, along with his accomplices, allegedly gangraped a 13-year-old school girl at a city hotel here March 17.

After the incident came to light, police arrested Bobby Jyrwa Nongsiej, Johny Kshiar, Brando Nongrum and Angel Dulian, but Roy managed to give the police a slip and ran away.
