BHUBANESWAR: A 19-year-old girl was beaten up by a woman, who allegedly tried to abduct her over a ‘previous enmity’, at the crowded Palaspalli Chhak on Monday afternoon. The girl __ Pritismita Nayak __ has sustained injuries while the woman, identified as Pinky Reddy, has been taken by the Mahila police.
According to reports, Pritismita Nayak, an orphan who had grown up at an orphanage in Biribati on the outskirts of the City, was going to her house at Palaspalli when Pinky accosted her. An altercation ensued which soon took a violent turn when Pinky allegedly started beating the girl.
Pinky also tried to force Pritismita into an autorickshaw and the hullabaloo drew attention of the locals. As the locals gathered, police also rushed to the spot. The injured girl was taken to the hospital. Pinky has been detained at the Mahila police Station for questioning.
While the cause of the incident is still to be ascertained, it is believed to be the outcome of an enmity with a man Pritismita had during her job at a jeweller’s in the City. She had left the job and joined Apollo Hospitals recently.
During her previous job, she allegedly had a fight with a male colleague. Monday’s incident is suspected to be sequel to that.
