Rourkela: A 50-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly raping a minor girl in the RS Colony under Bandhamunda police limits in Rourkela.
The man, identified as Sushil Naik, allegedly lured the nine-year-old girl with a chocolate and took her to a lonely place where he raped her. Though the incident occurred on December 24, the minor girl did not tell anyone out of fear.
Family members of the girl came to know about the sexual assault only when she fell ill and was admitted to the Rourkela government hospital.
Police arrested Naik based on a complaint filed by the girl’s family at the Bandhamunda police station.
However, a security guard, Sujit Rana, has been arrested for attempting to rape a three-year-old girl at the Sambalpur hospital on Wednesday.
As per a police complaint lodged by the girl’s family members, the security guard had called the minor girl, who was beside her elder sister and mother at the hospital, and attempted to rape her.
