Cuttack: A 15-year-old girl was allegedly gangraped by two men inside a house located at a secluded place near Gatiroutpatna under Chauliaganj police limits in Odisha’s Cuttack city.
According to reports, the victim, a class-IX girl hailing from Tirtol area of Jagatsinghpur district, was staying with her married elder sister and brother-in-law at Professor Pada here for the last one month after her father started torturing her.
Following a dispute between her sister and brother-in-law, the former asked the minor girl to return to her home. While the girl was waiting for a bus at OMP Square here on the fateful day, a man approached her and took her to a house near Gatiroutpatna on the pretext of taking her home.
The man and his associate forcibly confined her inside the house for 22 days and raped the victim. The accused duo also recorded the video of the incident on mobile phone and threatened her to post it on social media if she dared to disclose the matter.
Acting on a tip-off, the Chauliaganj police on October 12 night reached the spot and rescued the girl. She was later handed over to the Childline. Her statement was recorded by the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) yesterday.
The Childline has lodged an FIR in this regard with the Chauliaganj police.
