Bhubaneswar, Mar 30:
Commissionerate Police on Sunday nabbed two minors for allegedly raping a minor Dalit girl at Dumduma under Khandagiri police limits here.
The matter came to light yesterday night after the girl’s parent lodged a complaint with the Mahila police station here. Acting on the complaint, police nabbed the two minors – aged 14 and 17 years – and forwarded them to the Juvenile Justice Board in Khurda today.
In their complaint, the girl’s parent had alleged that the two boys of the same locality lured her with chocolates a week ago and took her to an isolated place where they gang-raped the girl and threatened her not to disclose the incident to anyone.
Family members of the girl, after coming to know about the incident, first filed a complaint with Khandagiri police station, which sat over the complaint for a few days before referring the case to the Mahila police station yesterday.
Mahila police, after conducting a medical test on the victim, nabbed the duo from Dumduma area and carried another medical test on the accused before sending them to the juvenile court.
