Moreover, there were two men who allegedly sexually assaulted a minor girl who went into the forest to get firewood in Golaghat’s Salmara Bagicha village, according to reports.

In the meantime, the second suspect, Nunu, is still on the run. Officials assured them that he would be imprisoned soon.
During the preliminary inquiry, it was discovered that the two accused had intimidated the victim into not disclosing the occurrence. To scare her, they allegedly held a machete over her head.
According to an official, the victim was too afraid to tell her family about the occurrence. After a two-day delay, the family stepped forward to file a complaint.
The event is being investigated, and police have stated that justice will be done.
