Three persons have been arrested in a sex scandal-- involving three Assam MLAs, officers, municipal commissioners and lawyers-- that has rocked Silchar town since Thursday night.
According to TOI report, police swung into action after two women, allegedly involved in sex trade, filed three FIRs after escaping from the racketeers’ clutches. The FIRs named three MLAs-- Aminul Haq Laskar, Kishore Nath (both BJP) and Nizam Uddin Chaudhury (AIUDF)-- and many others. The complainants accused them of visiting a house in Meherpur from where the racket was being run.
On Thursday, police arrested the woman allegedly running the racket and two others. On Friday, the three were produced in court, said police, adding that two other accused were at large. “The MLAs are not accused but have been shown only as customers,” police said.
Rejecting the charges, Laskar said, “On December 8, 2006 one Tony Mazumdar had tried to kill me. He is the son-in-law of the woman who allegedly runs the racket..” Chaudhury said, “I am a religious person. No one will believe I can be involved in such activities.” Nath, said, “I demand a high level inquiry.”
Reacting over the reports, one of the BJP MLA, Aminul Haq Laskar, said that on August 8 the son-in-law of the lady who used to run the sex racket tried to kill him. He later questioned why he would go to a place where people are trying to kill him, NewsX report stated.
The other BJP MLA said his lifestyle both public and private have always been open and in the eyes of the public. He further demanded a high-level enquiry into the matter.
