Assam TMC chief and AITC national spokesperson Ripun Bora on Thursday strongly condemned the shocking incident reported from Ghograpara Police Station in Nalbari district where an underage girl in lock up was stripped by a police officer and being photographed. Bora alleged that the actions of CM Himanta Biswa Sarma to empower Assam Police personnel against controlling crime resulted in extreme Police Raaj in the state. The shameful incident which happened at Ghograpar Police Station on the unfortunate night of June 21 is reported by the girl on June 26 at Nalbari district head police station, however no action was taken on that complaint till 28th June. Commenting on this, Ripun Bora further stated that the Assam Police which is now enjoying extreme power due to the blessings of CM rarely cares about the welfare of the public. The police themselves have turned from protectors to violators. The heinous crime of stripping an underage girl in police lock up and the act of photographing it demands immediate punishment from police personnel.
Ripun Bora further accusing the BJP led Assam Government of the lawlessness situation in the state and cited the incident of killing of SI Jonmoni Rabha and nexus of police with mafias. He also mentioned the case where Gauhati High Court reprimanded the Dhubri police for detaining a lactating mother and her breastfeeding baby in the police station for six days without arresting them.
