July 1, 2012 - Karimganj

Police in Assam's Karimganj area have arrested five persons in connection with an incident in which Congress MLA Rumi Nath and her second husband were allegedly thrashed and attacked.

Nath and her second husband were beaten up and injured when they were attacked on Friday night in a hotel by a group of people who were angry over her second marriage without divorcing her first husband.

Nath and her second husband who were escorted to Guwahati have received medical treatment and were reported to be out of danger.

"Five persons suspected to have been involved in the attack on the woman MLA have been arrested from here," Superintendent of Police Pradip Pujari said.

Nath has filed an FIR with the police alleging that a mob had attacked her on "political motivation".

Further investigation are continuing, Pujari said.
