Guwahati: Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Bhupen Bora has constituted a three-member committee after a complaint of molestation was received from Bhawani Kalita on September 29, 2022, against General Secretary Assam PCC Apurba Kumar Bhattacharjee.

According to the FIR to the Bhangagarh police station, Bhawani Kalita wrote, “In the month of May 2022 (I don’t remember the exact date) at around 1 to 2 pm she was nearby the corridor of the General Secretary room inside the premises of Rajib Bhawan in Guwahati, when, APCC  Apurba Kumar Bhattacharjee touched me inappropriately. I was shocked for a while, but, later, I moved aside and informed about the incident to my fellow members of APCC. I was going through a very scary mental trauma since then. In the month of June 2022, I tendered my resignation to the party. I hope that police of the Bhangagarh police station will appropriate action against Apurba Kumar Bhattacharjee.”

Meanwhile, the three-member committee has been directed to take charge immediately and enquire into the matter. They will have to submit a report to President APCC within the next 10 days, an order from the APCC stated.

The committee will be headed by Nripendra Thakuria, vice president, APCC, A Sobahan Ali Sarkar (MLA) and Advocate Banashree Gogoi, GS, APMC.
