Assam: Hotel where Rajkanya Baruah partied fails to reply to show cause notice | Guwahati News


GUWAHATI: The five-star hotel, where 29-year-old model Rajkanya Baruah had allegedly attended a party before hitting eight roadside workers with her speeding car on October 2 night leaving them seriously injured, has failed to reply to a showcause notice over violation of Covid-19 protocol. The hotel, Vivanta by Taj, sought seven days’ time from the Kamrup (Metro) district administration to reply to it.
The district administration on Sunday had showcaused the hotel, located at Khanapara in the city, for organising a party while the Covid curfew was in force, thereby violating protocols, and directed it to reply within 24 hours.
The state is currently under a seven-hour night curfew from 10pm to 5am the next day.
“They (the hotel) could not file a reply to the show-cause notice and have sought seven days’ time. So, we have granted them that time. Actions will be taken if they fail to reply by next Monday,” said Biswajit Pegu, Kamrup (Metro) deputy commissioner.
Baruah was allegedly driving her car at a high speed in an “inebriated condition” after allegedly attending a birthday party at hotel Vivanta by Taj at Khanapara and hit the workers near Rukminigaon area. The workers were engaged in the city’s beautification work ahead of the visit of vice-president M Venkaiah Naidu to the state.
She was granted bail in less than 12 hours, which triggered massive outrage, and several FIRs were lodged at different police stations in the state.
On October 6, police arrested her from the ICU of a private hospital, where she had got admitted after getting bail, on the basis of a report by a panel of six government doctors of Gauhati medical college and hospital. However, she was found fit to appear before the investigation officers.
On October 8, the court of chief judicial magistrate, Kamrup (Metro) sent her to judicial custody.
Meanwhile, following the direction of director general of police Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta, police are investigating the CCTV footage of the party in the hotel on the night of October 2.
