No complicity of security jawans in Koraput gang-rape, reiterates DGP

Bhubaneswar: Director General of Police Dr Rajendra Prasad Shamra today reiterated that movement of security forces has not yet been established in the investigation in the gang-rape of a minor tribal girl in Kunduli by four uniformed men on October 10.

The DGP said that the investigation is going on in the right direction and the case will be cracked soon.

Sharma when asked to comment of BJD SC Cell president Bishnu Das's remarks that Speical Operation Group (SOG) personnel were involved in the crime, said that, 'Movement of security forces has not yet been established so far. However, the Koraput SP has got some new leads in the case and working out on it with the help of the Crime Branch. I hope the case will be cracked soon.'

He said the Human Rights Protection Cell (HRPC) Additional DG has conducted a probe into the case separately and submitted his report to the State Human Rights Commission. Though more than 25 days have been passed into the ghastly mishap, police are yet to get any clue in the case.

The minor tribal girl, a Class-IX girl of Sarispadar Sevashram School, and a resident 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.
