GUWAHATI, Oct 4 � After being on the run for nearly four weeks, rape accused AIUDF legislator Gopinath Das was finally arrested from Hajo Chowk this afternoon by a team led by Kamrup Superintendent of Police, Indrani Baruah.

Das� pre-arrest bail application was rejected by the Gauhati High Court on October 1, making his arrest imminent.

The controversial AIUDF MLA, charged of raping his 14-year-old domestic help, has been booked under Section 4/8 of the POCSO Act, 2012. Another case was registered under Section 447/506/355/384/420/120B of the IPC for allegedly forcing the victim girl�s parents to file an affidavit in his favour.

Kamrup SP Indrani Baruah informed that a team of police officials was following the movement of the accused based on specific information.

�We were shadowing his movement. The accused was arrested while he was on the move,� Baruah said.

Police sources informed that two more persons were picked up along with Gopinath Das and are being questioned in the Palasbari Police Station. Already, police has made a number of arrests, including some of the relatives of the legislator, in connection with the case. Police said that Das, in a bid to evade arrest, had even travelled outside the State.

Close on the heels of his arrest, AIUDF MLA Gopinath Das was today suspended by the party.
