The BJP State Mahila Morcha has many times said the Odisha police must provide help and protection to abusers of minor girls. Now, Delhi Women’s Commission (DWC) Chairperson Swati Maliwal’s letter to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has proved this concern, said Morcha president Pravati Parida at a Press conference here on Sunday.
Parida said the DCW chief’s letter has exposed the crumbling law and order situation in the State. The letter is proof of the Odisha police and the Chief Minister’s inefficiency.
When a 16-year-old girl of Sundargarh was abducted by a 40-year-old-man, her father had lodged a complaint with police. However, the Lathikatha police did not take any action. The cops allowed the abductor to go scot-free even though he was in their clutches. Why did the police knowingly help the abductor and on whose pressure, questioned Parida.
What the Odisha police could not do in two years, their Delhi counterparts did it in one day, she remarked.
