Guwahati, August 12: The Krishak Shramik Unayan Parishad (KSUP) on Sunday demanded the arrest of MP Rajen Gohain besides stripping him of the portfolio of the Union Minister of State for Railways. The organization claimed that the woman who recently lodged a complaint against the Union Minister of Railways, alleging rape, is now being threatened with dire consequences by some suspected goons of the Union Minister.

Speaking to the media persons in a press meet, KSUP further alleged that the family members of the woman have apparently gone underground along with the two women for safety reasons. The organization requested the DGP, Assam Police and Nagaon SP to ensure safety of the family. KSUP members further stated that they will soon file a case against the BJP MP in this regard.

The organization further alleged that the Union Minister, Rajen Gohain was earlier charged with a rape case in the 90s. Following the incident, the Minister’s family was boycotted by the society for the next three years, claimed the organization further.
