Three youths have been arrested on the charge of molesting a girl in a busy area here even as Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi tonight said the incident should not have allowed to take place in a public place.
"The three youths were arrested in connection with the molestation case which happened in front of a bar on Guwahati-Shillong Road on July 10," Superintendent of Police Apurba Jyoti Barua said.
However, according to reports, scores of bystanders just stood around and some even filmed the incidents (others posed and grinned for the camera, as the girl's modesty was being outraged by a mob of men (the men are being numbered in the dozens) who were tearing off her clothes and groping her indiscriminately.
And even after 3 days of the attack on the girl, just three have been arrested while the others are roaming free, putting the girl in further danger.
Barua said the girl entered into a brawl in the bar with her friend and following an altercation some youths attempted to molest her.
The arrested included contractual employee of Assam Electronic Development Corporation Ltd Amarjyoti Kalita.
Kalita, who had also acted in a Assamese serial where he had enacted the role of a policeman, has since been dismissed from service. Two other arrested Dhananjoy Basfor and Bubul Das, the SP said.
The accused were framed under Sec 341 (wrongful restraint) 143 (unlawful assembly), 294 (obscene act), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 354 (assault or criminal force on a woman with the intent to outrage her modesty) of IPC following a written complaint filed by girl's mother.
