Puri rape accused nabbed, sent to jail

Friday, 28 January 2022 | PNS | PURI

In the case of rape of the five-year-old girl, police arrested the
accused Mahesh Mohanty from a location near the Puri-Bhubaneswar
border on Wednesday evening. After medical examination, the accused
was sent to jail on Thursday after being produced before the designated court in Puri.
A police team engaged since Sunday went to the area and nabbed Mohanty. According to ASP Mihir Nanda, the location from where the accused was arrested has been kept a secret to facilitate the investigation process.
Notably, the accused had raped the minor girl after luring her to the terrace of a building in the Sidhabakula Math lane of Puri town when
he found her alone in her house. He managed to escape from the
spot when the girl’s mother reached there after hearing her screaming.

Meanwhile, police accorded ‘Red Flag’ status to the case. “We are taking the case with all seriousness and it will be tagged as a ‘Red Flag’ case after a discussion with the Crime Branch,” said Puri SP Kanwar Vishal Singh.
