Boudh: The deadly spectre of rape of women and girls surfaced yet again, this time in Boudh district where a 15-year-old Paree (girl) was gangraped by two youths in broad day light on Sunday.

As per the police complaint filed by the girl, two persons – Tiku Badhia (25) of Syamasundarpur and Tuku Kumbhar (24) of Bapuji Nagar – kidnapped her by tying her hands and legs while she had gone to purchase grocery from shop yesterday afternoon in Bapuji Nagar village. The accused then, in a secluded place, raped her in turns.

“They abducted me when I had gone to the market. They took me to an isolated place and I cannot narrate what they did to me by tying my hands, legs and mouth,” said the survivor, who was rescued from the spot by her kin in an unconscious state.

Sushil Kumar Panigrahy, Additional SP of Boudh informed that both Tiku Badhia and Tuku Kumbhar have been arrested based on the allegation of the girl. They will be forwarded to the court after medical examination, he added.

On the other hand, locals condemned the incident and demanded stringent action against the accused. They also expressed their anxiety for the safety of girls and women in the area.

“We are now scared of sending our wives, sisters and daughters out for some work. The accused persons should be given such stringent punishment as per the law so that others may not repeat such heinous crime,” said Krishna Mukhi, a local resident.
