Sushanta Talukdar

Three persons have been arrested on charges of molesting a girl in Christianbasti locality along the busy Guwahati-Shillong road, close to the Dispur capital complex on Monday night, when she was coming out of a bar.

Senior Superintendent of Police Apurba Jibon Barua told The Hindu that so far nine persons involved in the incident have been identified.

Police were trying to identify the others.

The Assam State Commission for Women has taken suo motu notice of the case and convened a sitting of the full Commission on Friday, said Commission chairperson Meera Barooah.

“It is a heinous crime and we strongly condemn it,” she added.

Rescued by DSP

Giving details of the incident, the Senior Superintendent of Police said some people attacked the girl after she came out of the bar and molested her. The girl was later rescued by a Deputy Superintendent of Police and a few passers-by. A police team also reached the spot.

“We are investigating the case. As of now our immediate priority is to identify and arrest the culprits. There could be some 10-12 who were actually involved in the crime while others were bystanders,” he added.

Mr. Barua said the police were identifying the culprits on the basis of footage of television news channels.

Task force to be formed

Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi strongly condemned the incident. Mr. Gogoi said on the sidelines of a meeting that the State government was highly concerned over such incidents. A task force would be formed to tackle and prevent such crimes against women.

He also said the police had been directed to keep a strong vigil to prevent such incidents.
