ALA speaker asks police to take up FIR

Assam Assembly Speaker Pranab Gogoi on Friday ordered police to take up the complaint lodged against MLA Rumi Nath and her second husband who illegally entered his residence and assaulted visitors on the suspicion that they were involved in the attack on them last week.

Speaker Gogoi has issued a letter to the Dispur police station to investigate into the issue. The police said the FIR was filed after Purkayastha faxed the complaint to the Dispur police station during the day. Purkayastha alleged that Nath, her second husband Jacky Jakir and two security guards forcibly entered his official residence at the Dispur capital complex late last night and beat up and injured four visitors and a caretaker in his absence. They suspected that those involved in the attack on Nath in Karimganj on June 29 were sheltering there.
