A day after a woman was rescued from a canal in a critical state in Odisha’s Jharsuguda district, a case of gang rape and kidnapping has been registered with the local police here today.
According to reports, the victim hailing from Mangalabag area in Cuttack had boarded a train to Jharsuguda from where she was to catch a connecting train on September 8.
