Man gets 10-yrs imprisonment for raping, kidnapping minor
Bhubaneswar: A day after as many as 13 persons were arrested by the Mayurbhanj district police on charges of two separate gang-rape cases, Rairangpur additional district and sessions judge (ADJ) on Tuesday awarded a man 10 years imprisonment for kidnapping and raping a 12-year old.
Rairangpur ADJ Vikram Keshari Pattnaik convicted the accused Narayan alias Naran Murmu for kidnapping the victim on February 27 last year, when she had gone to Bijatala village under Rairangpur police limits to attend a function of tribal community.
Murmu, according to police, had lured the victim to drop her at her home and committed the heinous crime after she agreed and went with him.
A case was registered in this regard the next day.
On Monday, six men allegedly gang-raped a woman after tying up her husband near the district headquarters hospital in Baripada. In a similar incident Kaptipada police arrested seven on gang-rape charges.
