Jeypore: A team of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Friday returned to Vishakhapatnam after completing its probe into Kunduli gang rape and suicide case.

The final probe report will be submitted by the team at the NHRC headquarters office in New Delhi soon.

The team led by NHRC DSP Rabi Singh had carried out an inquiry for four days and met security personnel, forensic laboratory officials and relatives and family members of the gang rape victim in Koraput.

Sources said, the team had also examined  and met officials of BSF, CoBRA, OSAP, IRB and SOG and enquired about the movement of security personnel in the region.

Besides, the rights commission team also met director of the State Forensic Laboratory, Crime Branch SP and doctors involved in the treatment of the victim during their probe into the incident that has sparked public outrage in Odisha.

Yesterday, the team met gang rape victim's mother and aunt to get a detailed account of the incident.

The NHRC had formed the team for an on-the-spot probe after a petition was filed by a social activist. The commission had also asked the State authorities and the HRPC ADG to submit report about the incident.

According to reports, the minor girl from Kunduli had alleged that she was gang-raped by four security personnel on October 10, 2017.

Later, the girl had allegedly committed suicide insider her house at Musaguda on January 22, 2018.

The death of the girl had triggered widespread resentment among people with major political parties training their guns on Odisha government for its failure in providing justice to the victim.

On the other hand, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on February 7, 2018 ordered for a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to investigate the Kunduli gang rape and suicide case.
