Assam Police today arrested Rumi Nath, a Congress legislator for her alleged nexus with Anil Chauhan, the auto theft racketeer.

Nath was arrested for two cases, a senior official from Guwahati Police Commissionerate confirmed. Both the cases are related to her nexus with the kingpin of auto theft racket.

“She was arrested from her official residence in Dispur on Tuesday morning,” the official added.

“She was arrested under non-bailable sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) which include Section 120 (B), 212, 420 and 468,” the official said.

The Guwahati High Court last week had rejected the MLA’s plea for an anticipatory bail.

Rumi Nath was first elected to the Assam assembly as a BJP candidate from Barkhola constituency in 2006. In 2010 she jumped ships and won the Assembly elections with a Congress ticket.

This is the second time in a month that a Congress leader has been in the news for wrong reasons. In March, Congress chief Anjan Dutta was questioned by CBI over his alleged role in the ‘Saradha scam’.

Dutta’s house was searched and he was also questioned last year by the CBI.

Four FIR’s were lodged in Assam along with 44 in Orissa in which it was alleged that investors were duped of their money by company officials who swindled it.

Congress MP Shashi Tharoor is giving comedy a shot for the first time, and says embracing stand-up comedy has been an overwhelming experience.

Tharoor made his debut in the world of humour with “One Mic Stand”, which brings celebrities from diverse backgrounds and help them perform stand-up comedy for the very first time with one established comedian.

“I’m quite excited to be an integral part of this unique stand-up comedy series on Amazon Prime Video. Needless to say, it’s been an overwhelming experience for me to embrace stand-up comedy for the first time ever,” Tharoor said.

“At times, we do crack a joke or two in the political fraternity, though humour is always a big risk in the political world. However, this live comedy act in particular is fun and rewarding in itself. It feels like being a driver who takes his audience on a laughter journey whilst steering an unfamiliar bus all on his own,” added the former diplomat, who has been a successful author with great English vocabulary.

“One Mic Stand”, a five episode series, is created and hosted by Sapan Verma in collaboration with Only Much Louder. The show went live on Amazon Prime Video on November 15.

“Great to wear this maiden hat of a stand-Up comedian. Kudos to Kunal Kamra, my mentor on the show and Sapan for making it happen,” Tharoor said.
