Basing on a complaint filed by the family of the girl, the accused was detained by the police today.

On the fateful day, the 14-year-old girl was on her way to attend a family function when Muna Nayak – a distant relative (brother in law) of hers from the same village kidnapped and took her to his house.

“I was going alone to my uncle’s house when he gagged my mouth with a cloth and abducted me. He took me to his house and raped me for two days,” said the minor girl.

Yesterday, he released the girl after which she managed her way back home and narrated the ordeal to her parents.

“She was missing from the night of April 17. We tried to search her but in vain. Later, she returned on April 19 and narrated the entire incident. We have reported the matter to police and want stringent action against the accused,” informed the survivor’s relative.

Meanwhile, the minor girl has been taken to the District Headquarters Hospital (DHH) in Bhawanipatna for medical examination.

“A case has been registered at the Thuamul Rampur police station. The minor has alleged that her brother-in-law raped her. Investigation into the case is on and the medical test of the girl will be conducted today,” informed Bhawanipatna SDPO.

This is the sixth instance when a minor girl has been raped in Odisha during the past one week. While, a Class-III girl student of Bachaka village under Biswanathpur police station of Kalahandi district was allegedly raped on Wednesday, another girl faced similar assault by an auto driver in Mayurbhanj district the same day.
