Cuttack: Tension erupted during Kunduli gang rape victim's discharge from SCB Hospital in Cuttack as police allowed only her mother to accompany the minor girl in the vehicle to return home.
While police allowed her mother only to accompany her during back home journey, her family members demanded that her aunt be allowed to go with her too.
Koraput MLA Krushna Chandra Sagaria supported the victim's family and staged a dharna along with his supporters, following which tension erupted in the hospital premises and the cops reportedly had to resort to mild lathi charge.
The legislator later withdrew the dharna after police appeased him.
Later, she was allowed to leave the hospital along with her mother and aunt.
Notably, the Kunduli gang rape victim shifted to SCB Medical College & Hospital (SCBMCH) from Saheed Laxman Nayak Medical College & Hospital in Koraput on November 19 after her health condition deteriorated.
