A minor girl who worked in a melody party was on Monday allegedly gang-raped by four men, including a dismissed police constable, in a police quarter of Puri district in Odisha, police said.
The girl was waiting at the Nimapara bus stand in Puri district when the four men in a car offered her a lift promising to drop her home.
Kulamani Sethi, inspector of Kumbharpada police station under whose jurisdiction the incident happened said, “instead of dropping her home, the four persons took her to an official quarter in Puri town and gang-raped her this evening,”
The victim, during the sexual assault, caught hold of an identity card belonging to one of the accused. Later, the police found out that the ID card belonged to Jitendra Sethi, a police constable who was dismissed some time ago.
The police officials said several teams have been formed to grab the accused.
