The woman's husband lodged an FIR alleging that Congress leader Bikram Singh Brahma raped his wife last night.
Based on the FIR filed by the woman's husband, the police in lower Assam's Chirang district today arrested Brahma, Chirang superintendent of police Kumar Sanjeev Krishna said.
Brahma is the Congress coordinator of Bodoland Territorial Council and Baksa district Congress committee chairman.
When the people of Santipur area along the Indo-Bhutan border, where the incident happened, came to know of the incident, they gheraoed Brahma and later the police arrived on the scene and took him into custody.
Before cops came on scene crowds had almoxt stripped him naked, severely thrashed him and were in the process of lynching him when he was rescued.
The SP said appropriate action will be taken as per the FIR filed by the victim's husband.
PUBLIC IS TAKING LAW IN THEIR HANDS, AS THEY HAVE NO BELIEF UPON THE POLICE AUTHORITY. IN INDIA ONLY ONE THING AVAILABLE. JUSTICE DELAYED INTENTIONALLY.
Is India being ruled by fraudsters , looters , rapists , murderers,thugs and misleaders?
One comes across several cases of extreme atrocities being committed against women in our country.Our age old value calls for giving full respect to ladies and to treat them with reverence. However, in the midst of materialistic progress the values and ethos have been overlooked and we have failed to safeguard them miserably.The ills and evils can not be removed overnight. It will require proper changes in education system Social values favouring males need to be canged. As a deterrent , laws against rape have to be enforced effectively and changed and punishment needs to be as severe as the agony faced by the victim. The culprit has to be exposed for his heinous crime and treated accordingly.All in society will have to contribute in making the society free from such evils and keep the demons away from the humans.
With the Congress Party advocating its much publicized "Name and Shame" policy for rapists, it is apt for the party to start this project with its prominent leader Shri Bikram Singh Brahma at the top to showcase to the world that it means business with zero tolerance for rape crimes against women.
Sonia Madam said during Gujarat election campaign that NO ONE is safe in Gujarat BUT what about her own (party ruled) states first it was Rajasthan., now Assam. DO they really care about women, with a woman as a party leader and with some women like Renuka Chaudhary etc. It is time they kick out those party members/ministers who are involved in crime against women either before or being elected. IF they don't do now then it clearly shows their TRUE COLOUR
