Coochbehar: High Court has ordered a CID probe against a Trinamool MLA Hamidur Rehman for alleged rape of a woman back in 2005. The MLA is Hamidur Rehman, who represents Chopra Assembly constituency in North Dinajpur.
Justice Debangshu Basak ordered the probe following a petition that the victim woman had filed in 2015. The case dragged for two years. During the hearing, the woman’s counsel Anjan Bhattacharya told the court that the SP of North Dinajpur has himself said that police were not in a position to probe the allegation. This makes it amply clear the clout the MLA enjoys.
Rehman was an Independent MLA from 2005-2011 when he allegedly raped the woman from his constituency promising her marriage. In 2011, the MLA joined the Trinamool and denied the relationship
