Man held for raping 2-year-old daughter in Odisha’s Puri
Puri: In a highly shocking and shameful incident, a man was yesterday detained for allegedly raping his two-year-old daughter at Goudabada Sahi in Odisha’s Puri town.
As per reports, mother of the baby girl had filed an FIR with Puri Town police accusing her husband of raping their daughter.
The complainant further alleged that the accused is a liquor addict and used to thrash her while being in inebriated state. He was sent to jail in connection with a domestic violence case and released on bail, recently.
On the basis of the FIR, police registered a case and detained the accused for questioning.
In another incident, one Subhasish Tripathy allegedly raped a five-year-old girl at a slum under Baliapanda police limits in the town, yesterday.
As per the complaint lodged by the victim’s parents, the girl was alone at the house when the accused, a neighbour, committed the act.
Police registered a case and arrested Tripathy. He was produced before court and remanded to judicial custody after rejection of his bail plea.
The two incidents come close on the heels of the rape of a minor girl by one Mahesh Mohanty (35) at Sidha Bakula lane here on January 23.
Mohanty had allegedly raped the girl on the rooftop of her house. Hailing from Jagatsinghpur district, Mohanty had criminal antecedents and was recently released from jail.
He absconded after committing the crime. Puri police have formed four teams to trace and nab him.
