Cachar police has arrested two men for allegedly attempting to kill a woman after raping her.

The incident took place at Punihawai village under the Dholai police station in south Assam’s Cachar district on October 25, which came to light on Sunday.

The two men identified as Maniruddin and Riyaz from Bidyaratanpur village were arrested on Sunday.

The woman in her complaint alleged the two barged into her house on October 25 and threatened to kill her son if she resisted.

“They raped me… I… tried to escape when they attacked me with a sharp object. They tried to chop my head off but I escaped. I lost four fingers of my left hand. They ran away when I started screaming,” HT quoted the woman as saying.

She alleged police initially did not want to register a case and later ignored it.

“I went to the Dholai police station and registered the case on October 25 after a long argument with the police. But the police did not even ask the accused to come to the police station… The accused later threatened again to kill me. I had to run away… I am moving on the streets of Silchar town like a beggar because I have to feed my son,” she said.

Dholai police station in-charge Sahabuddin Barbhuiya refuted the claims made by the victim and said the two accused persons have been arrested and they are being interrogated.

He cited their initial probe and added the complainant’s husband remarried recently.

“One of the two accused is the father of her husband’s second wife,” he said.

The police officer said the accused will be produced before a court on Monday and added they will provide security to the women.
