Girl student levels harassment charges against Bhadrak Jailor

Bhadrak: An engineering girl student lodged a complaint at Bhadrak police station today alleging physical abuse and mental harassment against jailor of Bhadrak jail, Chinmaya Patra.

As per the police complaint, the accused Patra lured the girl to physical relationship and later married her on false promises at Khiching temple in Mayurbhanj in 2017.

After the girl later discovered that the accused had hid the information that he was already married and had two children, she tried to break the relationship with him.

However, the jailor blackmailed her with videos of their intimate scenes. The accused also took away the girl’s laptop, mobile phone and documents pertaining to the marriage and threatened to kill her if she tried to get help from police, the complaint stated.

“Patra threatened to eliminate me and my family, if I tried to lodge police complaint. He had been issuing threats through phone calls and help of some unidentified persons. I want justice and demand stringent punishment to him,” the complainant said.

Briefing on the matter, Bhadrak SDPO, Jalandhara Jali, said, “Patra met the girl on Facebook and subsequently married her while giving false promises. After coming to know about his previous marriage, the girl tried to sort out the matter but Patra did not cooperate. Investigation into the case is on and the one who is culprit will be punished.”

Earlier, the girl had filed a complaint before the IG (Prisons), but no action was taken, sources said.
