Assam Congress leader Bikram Singh Brahma has been arrested by police in the state's Chirang District for allegedly attempting to rape a woman.
Brahma, who is the Bodoland Territorial Area Districts' (BTAD's) Congress Co-ordination Committee President, reportedly tried to rape the woman in Salbari in Chirang around 2 a.m. this morning.
The woman is a mother of two children. She raised an alarm on being assaulted.
Angry villagers cornered Brahma and handed him over to the police after a thrashing.
The woman's husband filed a case against Brahma, who has denied being involved in the incident.
Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said the law would take its own course in the matter, and no guilty person would be spared. (ANI)
