Kunduli row: Congress announces State-wide stir Monday

Bhubaneswar: Maintaining that Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik's order for High Court monitored probe SIT probe into the Kunduli gangrape and subsequent suicide is only confined to announcement, the Congress today announced to launch a State-wide agitation from Monday in a phased manner.

'It is really unfortunate that the SIT probe as announced by the Chief Minister into Kunduli incident is confined to only announcement. It is now crystal clear that the State Government has no respect for dalits particularly women and girls as the Government is yet to name of the officers who will investigate the sensitive case,' said party Koraput MLA Krushna Chandra Sagaria in a press conference here.

He said party will stage a demonstration in the Bhubaneswar on Monday and subsequently will stage dharna in other parts of the State in a phased manner.

He alleged that the Government is deliberately trying to delay the probe further to conceal the crime.

On October 10, the 14-year-old minor girl alleged she was gang raped in a forest near Kunduli under Pottangi police limits in Koraput district by four security personnel. Unable to bear the shame after the police claimed that she was not raped the girl committed suicide in her house at Musaguda under Pottangi police station in Koraput district on January 22.
