TV scribe booked for sexual assault
A Guwahati- based journalist has accused the correspondent of a national television channel Aniruddha Bhakat Chutiya, of “kidnapping” and physically and sexually assaulting her.
Dispur Police registered the FIR against the broadcast reporter under sections 354 ( Assault or use of criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 341 ( Punishment for wrongful restraint), 392 ( Punishment for robbery), 323 ( Punishment for voluntarily causing hurt) 506 ( Punishment for criminal intimidation) and 34 ( Acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the Indian Penal Code. The accused was taken into custody soon after the complaint was lodged on December 1 but was released on bail on December 3.
The complainant alleged that the police is acting under pressure and therefore released him from custody without even presenting him before a magistrate. “The due process was not followed under some pressure,” she said.
