Khurda: Fed up of facing repeated harassment and eve-teasing by a 'stalker', a college girl allegedly attempted suicide by consuming poison under Balugaon police limits area in Khurda.
Though the victim, a +3 student, was rushed to Balugaon and later shifted to Berhampur hospital in critical condition, she succumbed while undergoing treatment.
According to sources, the ‘stalker’ identified as Prakash Dalei of Badakul area was earlier once arrested for troubling the girl basing on a complaint filed by her family. However as soon as he was released from jail recently, he started to harass the girl.
Family members in the complaint alleged that their daughter’s stalker was none other than their long time neighbour.
"My daughter had not revealed that the accused was tormenting her again after being released from jail. It was only at the hospital she informed the reason for which she attempted suicide," said victim's father.
Balugaon Inspector-In-Charge, Sanjay Patnaik informed, “the girl died while undergoing treatment at Berhampur. However, the family had not reported about the recent harassment incident. We will take appropriate action.” He also corroborated that the accused was earlier arrested on charges of harassing the girl.
