Kunduli Gang Rape: SIT Submits Probe Report Before Orissa High Court
Cuttack: The three-member Special Investigation Team (SIT) constituted by the Orissa High Court to investigate Kunduli gang rape and suicide incidents, today submitted a probe report in connection with the case before the HC.
The SIT comprising southern range DIG Satyabrata Bhoi, northern range DIG Himanshu Lal and south western range, Koraput, DIG Shefeen Ahmed K submitted the report before the HC panel in a sealed envelope.
“The SIT has been granted further one week time for submission of the final report by December 23,” victim’s lawyer Srijee Vausar informed the media.
It may be noted that the HC had directed the SIT to thoroughly conduct the probe while hearing the petition filed by the victim’s mother seeking CBI probe into the alleged gang rape of the minor girl. However, the HC ordered an SIT investigation.
The 14-year-old Class IX girl of Kunduli area in the district was allegedly raped by four ‘men in uniform’ while she was returning home from market on October 10, 2017. Later, the girl committed suicide by hanging herself on January 22, 2018.
