Kunduli gang rape victim commits suicide

Bubaneswar,Jan 22 (UNI)The much sensational October 10 kunduli gang rape incident took a tragic turn today as the victim dalit minor girl, committed suicide at her house frustrated over the police inaction and investigation into the case
The victim girl was rescued in a critical condition from her house in Musaguda village and taken to the Kunduli Community Health Centre where the doctors declared her as received dead.

The minor dalit girl had alleged that she was gang raped by four armed jawans .She had even told the newsmen that she was under pressure from the police to withdraw the case and even offered money by a senior police officer to change her statement.
The incident had snowballed into a major political issue in Odisha forcing the state government to declare it as a Red Flag case, order for a Crime Branch Inquiry and later a judicial inquiry by a sitting District Judge.

The girl,Ms Mohanty said took the drastic step to end her life, as she knew that she will not get the justice from the police and the administration.
