A man was arrested from Guwahati's Azara area on July 7 after his wife complained to the police that he had helped an AIUDF MLA, Nijam Uddin Choudhury, in raping her twice in May, the police said today. In her complaint, the woman said the MLA had raped her at Hailakandi circuit house on May 19 and later at her house on May 23.
Was confined to the house, says victim
The woman has accused the MLA of trying to take her to Guwahati but had to give up the plan after she threatened to commit suicide. The woman alleged that she was not allowed to go out of the house by her husband and could not lodge a police earlier as she was forcibly confined to the house, the police added.
Assam MLA dismissed the allegations
The Algapur MLA, however, dismissed the allegation, saying, "It is totally baseless and a conspiracy against me." He said the woman had met him along with her husband to settle their family problem and he had no connection with her.
