On Wednesday evening, Aug 17 the police raided the boy"s rented house in Morigaon, around 140 km east of Guwahati. The police action followed after the couple, in their early twenties, was found in a compromising position. Reports suggest the duo was having an affair.
The police, who had been acting hard on a tip off by some locals, managed to enter the house through an unlocked door. They also called upon some media persons. They then allegedly forced the duo to stay naked for close to twenty minutes to facilitate video-shooting and photography.
“Two sepoys had gone to the house but they didn"t order the duo to stay naked. The boy and the girl (a college student) got enough time to get garbed before the arrival of the mediapersons," district police chief Jeetmol Doley said.
“The sepoys didn"t have any criminal intentions. The girl said she didn"t have any grievance. However, we are trying to find out if there was any negligence. A DSP is probing the case and action will be taken against the personnel if found guilty," Doley said. He added that they were also trying to find out as to who had called in the journalists insisting that it was not done by the cops. Human right activists were quick to condemn the police action.
