In a shocking incident, a 15 year old minor girl was found dumped on the road side after being allegedly gang-raped on Friday night. She was rescued by local people in an unconscious state and admitted to the district hospital. She was later shifted to the SCB Medical College & Hospital, Cuttack where she is in a critical condition.
The girl who has sustained severe injuries on her head, is yet to regain consciousness
Sources in the victim’s family, which belongs to a village under Khaira block in Baleswar district, told OST that the girl had received a call on her mobile phone on Friday evening and had gone out to meet the caller ( not identified yet). The family got worried when she did not return home and looked frantically for her. They lodged a complaint with the local police after failing to trace her.
On Saturday, they found their missing daughter in a hospital after they received a call from the Baleswar district hospital asking them to identify an unconscious young girl who had been found by the roadside and admitted for treatment.
The victim’s brother alleged she had been gang-raped and tortured before being dumped by the roadside. He also said some people from Oupada could have been involved in the crime.
The local police have so far refused to share any information in the matter beyond saying that their investigation is on.
The details are likely to emerge after the victim regains consciousness, the girl’s family members said.
