Woman accuses Assam MLA of rape

A woman has complained that she was raped twice last month by Algapurv MLA with the help of her husband.

Following this an FIR was lodged against the accused on Friday.

The woman claimed that AIUDF MLA Nijam Uddin Choudhury had raped her at Hailakandi circuit house on May 19 and later at her house on May 23, the police said.

A police officer said the woman claimed that on both the occasions her husband had facilitated the MLA.

Choudhury, however, dismissed the charges, saying, "It is totally baseless and is a conspiracy against me."

He said the woman had met him along with her husband to settle their family problem and he had no connection with her.

In her complaint, the woman accused the MLA of trying to take her to Guwahati, but had to give up the plan after she threatened to commit suicide.

The woman claimed that she could not lodge a police complaint earlier, as  she was forcibly confined to the house by her husband.
