GUWAHATI, Aug 10 - Assam Police have registered a case against Minister of State for Railways Rajen Gohain for allegedly raping and threatening a 24-year-old woman in Nagaon district, a senior officer said today.

Nagaon Deputy Superintendent of Police (headquarter) Sabita Das said the case was registered against Gohain on August 2 after receiving a complaint at Nagaon Police Station. �We have registered the case. The investigation has already begun and we will proceed as per law,� she told PTI.

Das, however, refused to share any detail about the case.

A senior official of Nagaon Police Station said that the case (2592/18) was registered last week.

�The FIR was registered under IPC Sections 417 (cheating), 376 (rape) and 506 (criminal intimidation). We are investigating and have already noted the lady�s statement,� he said adding the woman has refused medical examination.

�The complaint says that the alleged incident took place seven to eight months ago. Both Gohain and the woman knew each other for a long time and the Union minister used to visit her home,� the official said.
