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.

Police however, have not allowed him to go and waiting for medical report and further investigation.
