The accused was found loitering around Garmur area under Mathurapur PS on a scooty. On being questioned, he initially said he was going to Mathurapur for buying medicines for a relative. But, when confronted that Simaluguri being a far bigger town than Mathurapur had more pharmacies than Mathurapur, he accepted that he was lying and was on his way to collect money from someone who owed him.
The accused said he was �advised� by someone that carrying a prescription is a good alibi and no one will bother to stop him. Later, on he started playing the victim card that police had stopped him from buying medicines.
