Guwahati: A Congress legislator in Assam on Friday filed an FIR against party MLA Rumi Nath alleging that she along with her second husband had illegally entered his residence and beat up visitors suspecting them to be involved in the attack on the couple last week.

Police said the FIR was filed after Congress MLA Kamalakhya Purkayastha from North Karimganj constituency faxed the complaint to the Dispur police station.

Purkayastha alleged that Rumi, her second husband Zakir Hussain and two of her escorts forcibly entered his (Purkayastha's) official quarter at Dispur capital complex on Thursday night and beat up at least four of his visitors and a caretaker.

Congress MLA files FIR against Rumi Nath

The FIR alleges that Rumi and her second husband illegally entered the MLA's residence and beat up visitors.

Purkayastha, who was not present in the quarter during the incident as he was in his constituency, further charged that Rumi attacked his visitors doubting that they were "involved in the attack on Nath and her husband" in a Karimganj hotel last week.

Police sources said investigations are on.

Rumi, who represents the Borkhola assembly constituency in Barak Valley, had created a furore by announcing her marriage with Zakir Hussain without divorcing her first husband.

Rumi and Zakir were beaten up and injured by a mob at Karimganj town on the night of June 29.
