"We have registered the case. The investigation has already begun and we will proceed as per law," she told PTI.
Das, however, refused to share any detail about the case.
"The FIR was registered under IPC sections 417 (cheating), 376 (rape) and 506 (criminal intimidation). We are investigating and have already noted the lady's statement," he said adding the woman has refused medical examination.
"The complaint says that the alleged incident took place seven to eight months ago. Both Gohain and the woman knew each other for a long time and the Union minister used to visit her home," the official said.
Gohain had committed the crime at the woman's home when her husband and other family members were not present, he said.
