Girl accuses cops of molestation during Ratha Jatra
Puri: In a shocking revelation through social media, a young girl today accused policemen deployed at Gundicha Temple of molesting women on Sunday.
In a Facebook post, the girl alleged that some policemen on duty molested female devotees inside the Gundicha Temple taking advantage of the heavy crowd on the eve of Bahuda Jatra. She said she slapped one of the culprits thrice.
“Just returning from Puri. It is very disheartening seeing the scenario here. It’s like I didn’t want to create a mess there but I just couldn’t control myself…”, she wrote.
She also stated that she couldn’t get an opportunity to have a glimpse of the three deities Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Subhadra due to such heinous activities by the cops.
However, the girl didn’t file any FIR in this connection.
Puri SP Sarthak Sarangi said, “No case has been registered in any police station in this regard. I will look into the matter and take appropriate action after the completion of Niladri Bije”.
