Dispur police brought out criticism for registering a case against former Miss India finalist Rajkanya Baruah under bailable sections of the IPC.
The incident took place on Friday late night, where 8 duty PWD workers were injured when Rajkanya Baruah’s speeding car rammed into an Auto van at the Rukminigaon in Guwahati.
Rajkanya Baruah, who was reported as drunk, smashed her vehicle into the auto van followed by the workers on GS road, who were engaged in the construction work there.
Surprisingly, the young woman was granted bail on the same day, who was driving the car at high speed in an intoxicated state.
The former Miss India finalist managed to get bail
However, the accused drunken woman managed to get bail due to ‘faulty FIR’ and the weak role of the Dispur police even after perpetrating such a ‘heinous crime’.
Any Criminal case against the woman was not filed by the police and except one, all the IPC sections slapped against her are bailable.
Driving under the influence of alcohol and violations of night curfew
The Guwahati police did not register the FIR for driving a car under the influence of alcohol, for resulting in injury to a person while driving under the influence of alcohol, and for the violation of the night curfew, which is in force in Guwahati given the Covid-19.
However, in Assam, the curfew is in force from 10 pm to 5 am.
The former Miss India finalist violated the Disaster Management Act but the officers have not filed any case in this regard.
Partying amidst curfew in Assam
In the Khanapara area in Guwahati, the young woman was partying in a five-star hotel.
Questions arises till midnight at a time when the Assam government handed out a strict order for the shutdown of all business establishments including hotels at 9 pm, how the party was going on in the hotel.
