BHUBANESWAR: The Odisha Human Rights Commission (OHRC) on Friday directed SC/ST Department and Koraput Collector to provide an interim financial assistance of Rs 50,000 to the Kunduli gang-rape victim's mother.
The rights panel has also directed that the minor girl be admitted to Ekalavya Model Residential School in Kunduli. It has sought a compliance report by November 27.
The Commission has also directed Crime Branch ADG to submit a status report of investigation within four weeks, one of the petitioners Biswapriya Kanungo said.
Earlier this week, chief minister Naveen Patnaik had ordered a judicial probe and had directed the Crime Branch to investigate the matter.
Meanwhile, the Superintendent of Saheed Laxman Nayak Medical College and Hospital today deposed before the Commission and submitted the bed head ticket and the treatment provided to the victim.
He had earlier only submitted the medico-legal report to OHRC.
On October 10, the girl was allegedly gang-raped by four men in uniform in Koraput’s Kunduli. However, the state police said investigation rules out rape triggering a controversy.
