Model Rajkanya Baruah re-arrested in road accident case

Guwahati, Oct 6 (TIWN) Model and 2016 Miss India finalist, Rajkanya Baruah, who injured eight roadside workers last week in Guwahati while driving her car allegedly at high speed and in an inebriated condition, was rearrested on Wednesday, police said.

"She (Baruah) is fit to appear before the Investigating Officer... does not require any hospitalisation. In case of any medical emergency, she may visit GMCH Emergency Department or OPD," the report said.   GMCH Superintendent Abhijit Sharma told the media that the medical board team has also had an extensive discussion with Baruah as well as the other doctors.   The model, who was granted bail in less than 12 hours after the accident on Friday night, did not appear before the Investigating Officer on Tuesday, despite being summoned, citing health complications.   Police had said that her family members had sought two weeks time for her to appear as she is undergoing treatment at a hospital.   Police have then sought a medical board report on Baruah and it was submitted on Wednesday.   A police official said that Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, who also holds the Home Department, intervened in the matter to reinvestigate the accident case after the police drew criticism for registering a weak case against Baruah under bailable sections of the Indian Penal Code.   Senior police officials are also probing the role of the policemen who earlier dealt with the case.
