Bhubaneswar: Superintendent of Koraput medical college Sitaram Mohapatra today deposed before the Odisha Human Rights Commission (OHRC) for questioning in connection with the Koraput gang rape.

Mohapatra had submitted medical examination report of the gang rape survivor to HRPC ADG Mahendra Pratap who later handed over the documents to the OHRC.

On basis of the medical examination report, the HRPC ADG had told media that experts had found no proof of gang rape after examining the girl.

In a related development, the OHRC directed the SC/ST Development department's Commissioner-cum-Secretary to pay Rs 50.000 interim aid to the gang rape survivor.

A four-member team of Crime Branch, which reached Koraput yesterday, has started its probe into the gang rape case.

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had ordered on November 8 an inquiry by a sitting district judge into the case as per the Commission of Inquiry Act 1952. The judicial inquiry will run in parallel with the State Crime Branch.

The 14-old-girl of Kunduli in Koraput district had alleged that she was gang raped by a group of security personnel on October 10 which triggered State-wide outrage forcing police to declare it as a ‘Red-flag’ case.

Road blockades, agitations and mass dharna were witnessed across the State over the alleged gang rape case.
