Konark: A 25-year-old girl from Kolkata in West Bengal was allegedly gang-raped by around 15 persons for 10 days inside a house at Konark Market Complex. Besides, she was allegedly forced into prostitution.
The matter came to light after some locals heard the girl crying for help from the roof of a locked house and informed the police this afternoon.
Police with the help of fire service personnel rescued the girl by breaking open the door and admitted her, who was writhing in pain, to Gop Community Health Centre (CHC). Later, she was shifted to Puri district headquarters hospital.
Narrating about her ordeal, the victim said, “A girl named Kajal brought me here on the pretext of job a year ago. However, Kajal and his male friend later forced me into prostitution. When I asked them to leave me they did not, not even for a single day to go to my house.”
“A youth named Subash Behera abducted me and held in captivity in the house, where he and several other persons took turns to rape me for 10 day. Police should arrest them and punish them according to the law,” she added.
Meanwhile, Konark police has recovered some Aadhar cards from the room and launched a manhunt to arrest the accused involved in the crime.
