Girl student sexually assaulted in Odisha, filmed

Malkangiri: Cases of sexual harassment seem unending in the state as one more college girl has allegedly been assaulted in the college by three non-students in Gobindapalli village of Malkangiri district.

The incident took place on November 7 when the Plus Two girl student was going to attend practical classes in her college.

According to a complaint filed with the Maithili police, three non-students including an Odia teacher intercepted the girl and allegedly took her to a room and sexually assaulted her.

The accused allegedly stripped her naked and video-recorded the whole incident on their mobile phones.

The complainant further said that the trio threatened to make the video viral on social media and eliminate her family members if she revealed anything to anyone. Moreover, the accused even threatened and assaulted a teacher who came to the survivor’s rescue.

After the complaint was lodged, Maithili police has initiated an investigation into the incident, sources said.

“They threatened me and my teacher that if we leak any information about the incident, then the matter will become worse and they would kill my family members. I want Kuan Acharya, Mahendra Panigrahi and Odia teacher Ajay Kumar Sutar to be punished severely. These things should not be encouraged. I don’t want this thing to happen to any other girl,” said the survivor.
