No bail for absconding Gopinath

There seems to be no respite for Gopinath Das as the Gauhati High Court rejected an anticipatory bail petition for the Boko AIUDF MLA in connection with the minor domestic help case. The court, however, asked police to submit the case diary required in the next hearing slated for September 22. On the other hand, police have been carrying out raids in a number of places in search of the MLA who has been absconding.

The police have registered a case against the MLA on charges of wrongfully confining a minor girl and also a case under the POCSO Act.
