Bhubaneswar, Feb 25:
In a horrendous incident, a six-year-old girl has been admitted to the Capital hospital in a serious condition on Wednesday after she was allegedly raped by her 50-year-old uncle under Infocity police station area in Odisha capital.
The accused, Kashinath Das, was arrested yesterday and has reportedly confessed to have committed the crime under the influence of alcohol.
Das is staying with his family in the Sikharchandi slum area in Bhubaneswar. His wife’s elder sister, along with her six-year-old daughter and other family members had come to their house for a visit.
Das, a native of Masada village in Binjharpur Tehsil area in Jajpur Town, worked in a private company in the city. He had come home drunk on Tuesday night and after picking up a fight with his wife, started beating her and his son. Both of them left the house and went to sleep in a hut next door.
They left the minor girl at home as she was sleeping. Finding her alone, Das allegedly raped her after covering her face with a pillow. The girl lost consciousness and Das ran away.
After the family members returned, they found the girl bleeding and called the police. The police immediately took her to a private nursing home in Patia. Later, she was shifted to the Capital Hospital as her condition deteriorated on Wednesday afternoon.
