Hailakandi: A woman has complained to the police that she was raped twice last month by an MLA with the help of her husband, following which an FIR was lodged against the accused at Hailakandi Sadar police station.
She alleged that All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) MLA Nijam Uddin Choudhury had raped her at Hailakandi Circuit House on 19 May and later at her house on 23 May, the police said.
Officer-in-charge of the police station Surajit Choudhury said the woman claimed that on both the occasions her husband had facilitated the MLA. On the basis of her complaint an FIR was lodged on Friday.
