Gujjar activist arrested for raping woman in Jammu and Kashmir's Samba
A prominent Gujjar activist has been arrested for allegedly raping a woman in Jammu and Kashmir's Samba district, the police said today.
He said the activist had also been booked under the Arms Act and a probe had been launched in the case.
Hussain shot into prominence after being at the forefront of a campaign to seek justice for an eight-year-old girl who was abducted, raped and murdered in Kathua district in January this year.
In June, Hussain's estranged wife registered a case against him for allegedly torturing her and demanding dowry, a charge, the activist said, "aimed at maligning him for raising his voice to seek justice for the Kathua rape and murder victim.
He was granted anticipatory bail by the Jammu and Kashmir High Court in the case.
