Bhubaneswar: A girl student of a college in Odisha capital was allegedly drugged by her classmate yesterday and it is suspected that a youth later made obscene video of the girl.
The shocking incident has raised serious questions over the safety of girls and women in the state amid uproar over the Kunduli rape victim’s suicide.
As per an FIR lodged by the father of the victim, a +2 Second Year student of Utkal Sangeet Mahavidyalaya, at Kharavela Nagar police station, his daughter became unconscious after returning home from the college yesterday around 12.30 pm.
She was then admitted to Capital Hospital here. After gaining consciousness, she told her father that one of her female classmates offered her two chocolate-like red-coloured stuffs during practical examination. She complained of headache and uneasiness after consuming those.
The victim’s father has alleged in the FIR that the concerned classmate of her daughter has links with one Samir Mohanty, who is involved in recording obscene videos of girls and making it viral.
“Months ago, my daughter had told me about a boy troubling her by trying to click photos and record videos of her inside college bathroom. I had earlier informed the matter to the college principal,” he said.
“A case has been registered into the incident and investigation is underway. We are taking it seriously. Her classmates will be questioned and hopefully the real matter will come to fore soon,” said Bhubaneswar DCP Satyabrata Bhoi.
