Police has registered a case against a BJP MLA in Arunachal Pradesh for allegedly raping a woman at his residence here.
The case has been registered at a women police station following her complaint on Tuesday, they said.
The matter is under investigation, a police officer said, without elaborating.
Meanwhile, the Arunachal Pradesh State Commission for Women has sought the case status from Capital Superintendent of Police (SP) Jimmy Chiram.
Taking suo-moto cognizance of the case, APSCW member-secretary Marbi Taipodioa Jini, in a statement issued on Thursday, said it is a very condemnable if the alleged crime by the lawmaker is proved true .
However, it would be too early for an assumption without proper and final investigation of police in the case, it added.
