Locals reportedly assaulted a group of Bhutanese truckers at Ampati in Garo Hills of Meghalaya recently.
According to a delayed report, the truckers were legally transporting boulders to Bangladesh via Meghalaya.
A police complaint has been filed in this regard by seven Butanese nationals identified as Tashi Phuntsho, Kinley Wangchuk, Karma Norbu, Uma Tamang, Thimley Dorji, Suresh Guraj and Nidup, according to The Shillong Times.
According to police quoting the FIR stated that on December 28 last year, the truckers were on their way to Dalu Land Customs Station in West Garo Hills exporting boulders from Gelophu in Bhutan to Bangladesh via Meghalaya as per agreement on trade, commerce and transit between the Government of India and Government of Bhutan.
However, on reaching Tura, they lost their way and went towards Ampati and around 3:30 pm on that day they were detained by some unidentified people who took them to an undisclosed location and assaulted them.
