GUWAHATI: Minister for Prison Girindra Mallik has sent a show-cause notice to the Guwahati Central Jail on Wednesday seeking explanation for exposing medical report of jailed Congress Legislator Rumi Nath.
Rumi Nath is in judicial custody for the past few days in connection with the probe into the high profile car-lifting case of Anil Chauhan.
The Congress MLA from Borlkhola constituency who complained of health problem on Monday was taken to Guwahati Medical College wherein she underwent various medical tests.
The exposed medical report states that the MLA is pregnant of nine weeks and three days.
Notably, lawyer of Nath had earlier claimed that the MLA was suffering from brain tumour. However, no report has been found regarding this till till now.
The show cause notice was sent to the Guwahati Central Jail Authority as it revealed the medical report to a section of media without prior permission of the court.
On the other hand, though the Guwahati high court sought the copy of the report by Wednesday, it is yet to be submitted.
Meanwhile Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has said that if Rumi Nath is proven guilty than the party will take action against the legislator.
