Odisha: Divyang Minor Girl Found Pregnant, Alleges Being Raped By Aahar Centre Worker
Bolangir: Despite outrage over the ‘never-ending’ atrocities, women and young girls continue to be victims of sexual abuse in Odisha. A divyang minor girl from Muribahala block here has allegedly been raped and impregnated by a worker of an Aahar Kendra in Titlagarh hospital.
The matter came to the fore after the 14-year-old girl was found four months pregnant when she underwent a medical check-up following frequent vomiting.
As per reports, four months back her brother was admitted to Titlagarh hospital for some treatment and she stayed with him as an attendant. It is during that period that she was allegedly raped by the worker of the Aahar centre.
Though she is suffering from mild speech impairment, she was somehow able to convey that the worker took her to the hospital toilet and raped her when there were not many people around. The accused even threatened to kill her if she reveals the matter to anyone. This very reason forced the minor to keep mum.
Recently when her health condition deteriorated, the family members admitted her to the hospital where doctors revealed that she is four months pregnant.
After the divyang girl narrated her ordeal and the trauma she has been going through for months, the family members lodged a complaint with Titlagarh Sub-Collector seeking justice. They have also demanded stringent action against the accused.
Further investigation is in progress.
