The involvement of promising young leader into such cases thrice in a year has embarrassed the top leaders of the party.

Dhannanjoy’s wife also alleged that, her husband tried to kill her.

This year in the month of May, his wife who was not married at that time registered a case of rape against Dhananjoy Tripura.

The girl alleged that the IPFT MLA has raped the girl with false promise of marriage.

The MLA had filed for bail in High Court on that occasion but denied the same.

Later in the month of June, he married the girl being bound under law and legal problems.

But soon after marriage, he started to torture her physically.

Though the FIR was registered last night itself, no arrest has been made so far.

The development has once again embarrassed the IPFT top leaders including N C Debbarma, the party president and Mever Kumar Jamatia, second in command of IPFT.
