Rape allegation strikes sensation in Namrup

NAMRUP: Tension prevails in Namrup a day after a group of villagers handed over a youth charging him with raping a girl three days back while some others have mounted pressure on the police to free him calling it a conspiracy.

Around 100 people from No 1 Borkeremia village detained a youth from a nearby village alleging that he on March 28 raped a girl as she was enjoying a local show at night. Identified as Diganta Bhuyan was later handed over to police who referred the victim to the hospital for medical test.

A couple of hours later many people moved the police in support of the detained youth alleging that he was innocent and that he should be freed.
