Gangrape: Koraput med college Superintendent likely to appear before OHRC today

Bhubaneswar: Superintendent of the Saheed Laxman Nayak Medical College and Hospital, Sitaram Mohapatra, is likely to appear personally before the Odisha Human Rights Commission (OHRC) here today and submit a detailed report on medical condition of the minor tribal girl who was allegedly gangraped by four uniformed men on October 10 in a forest in Koraput district.

On October 31, the commission had directed the Superintendent to appear before it personally for not submitting a report detailing the medical condition of the survivor.

The commission, while hearing a batch of petitions, seeking justice for the minor girl and action against the accused, the commission on October 20 had directed the medical college Superintendent to submit a report on her medical condition on October 31. However, the report did not contain details of the survivor's medical condition forcing the commission to summon the Superintendent.

The survivor was undergoing treatment at the Saheed Laxman Nayak Medical College and Hospital.

The Class-IX girl of Sarispadar Sevashram School, who is a native of Musaguda village under Pottangi police limits, had alleged that she was kidnapped and gang-raped by four armed security personnel, who were in jungle patch uniform in Lanjiguda forest while returning from Kunduli on October 10. Police are yet to get any clue about the miscreants.
