A 4-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a 45-year-old man in Barunadiha village in Kendrapara district, Odisha. Though the girl was sexually assaulted by one Ranjan Nayak of the same village on April 24, the matter came to light yesterday when her father lodged a complaint. On the basis of the FIR filed by the girl's father, police arrested Nayak last evening. Here's more.
Odisha has been witnessing a series of rape of minor girls in different areas including Balasore, Mayurbhanj, Ganjam, and Jagatsinghpur districts. The issue had also rocked the state Assembly recently with opposition the Congress and the BJP creating ruckus and stalling proceedings. Meanwhile, a six-year-old rape victim of Salepur in Cuttack district died at a hospital yesterday after battling for life for eight days.
