Two arrested in Banki rape case

Friday, 08 November 2019 | PNS | CUTTACK

The Banki police have arrested two persons and are on the lookout of three others, who had allegedly kidnapped and raped a dalit girl of Gopalpur village on Sunday.

Cuttack (Rural) SP RB Panigrahi informed about this and assured that he is personally looking into the incident as the victim has alleged that she was also tortured by the police and was forced to change her statements.

“I have recorded the statements of the victim; and I have taken serious note of her allegations that she was apparently tortured by the Banki police and was forced to change her statements,” Panigrahi said, adding that a senior DSP of the district police is investigating into the incident from all angles, including the allegations made by the victim against the local police.  

The victim was reportedly enticed by a youth of her village on Sunday evening from near her house and was dragged to a nearby deserted paddy field, where she was raped. Later with the help of four others, the youth was trying to traffic her to Surat in Gujarat. But the girl managed to flee from the claws of her abductors midway and escaped to a relative’s house at Khordha, from where the police rescued her.
