Sexual Assault Slur On Lady Home Guard In Nabarangpur
Nabarangpur: A 20-year-old girl on Sunday brought sexual assault allegations against a lady home guard in Umerkote area of Nabarangpur district.
The matter came to the fore after a complaint was lodged at Umerkote Police Station in this regard last night. Based on the complaint, Umerkote Police has initiated an investigation into the matter, said sources.
As per the complainant, the lady home guard, who was her neighbour, had engaged her as domestic help in 2016. Initially, the girl used to work at the home guard’s rented house in Dabugaon and later the two moved to another rented house in Kusumguda Sahi in Umerkote town.
The girl alleged that the home guard used to make her do all the house chores, physically torture and sexually torture her.
“She took me to her rented house in Dabugaon and later Umerkote. She kept me confined in the house and used to sexually abuse me,” stated the complainant.
However, the home guard recently let the girl visit the latter’s house on June 17 after the district administration launched door-to-door screening in the wake of Covid-19 pandemic.
The complainant alleged that the home guard had threatened her not to reveal anything to her parents. However, after returning to her house, she mustered courage and lodged a complaint against the lady home guard yesterday.
The lady home guard couldn’t be contacted to comment on the allegations. The story will be updated.
