Minor girl rape case: Accused cop under purview of investigation, says CP

Bhubaneswar: The police personnel accused in the minor girl rape case here is also under the purview of investigation, said Twin City Police Commissioner Sudhanshu Sarangi today.

Speaking to mediapersons, the CP said proper investigation of the incident is underway and action will be taken once the truth and evidence come out. However, Sarangi refused to divulge further details saying that it is too early to comment on the matter.

“Any kind of statement now will hamper the investigation process. We will inform the court and concerned authorities about the findings of the probe when the time comes,” he asserted.

Earlier on September 21, Managing Director of private regional news channel OTV Jagi Mangat Panda had reappeared before the  Odisha State Commission for Women responding to the notice served by the panel in connection with the incident.

However, she could stay for the hearing and pushed off citing prior engagement. Commission Chairperson Minati Behera had said that a fresh notice will be served to her through the DCP.
