Three persons were arrested on charge of raping a married woman in Khiro village in Jajpur district on Sunday night.

As per the FIR filed by the woman with Panikoili police, while she was waiting for bus at Panikoili to go to her Patana village in neighbouring Keonjhar district, the accused offered her a lift. Instead of taking the 35-year-old woman to Patana, they diverted from the route and went to Baitarani river bank where they raped her.

Hearing her screams, locals rushed to the spot and  rescued the woman. They also caught hold of the three and detained them at Khiro village. On being informed, police went to the village and arrested the three persons.

The three accused are Chakradhar Das (22) of Jajpur, Shaik Babu (23) of Bhadrak and Manas Majhi (25) of Keonjhar district.

They were produced in the court which rejected their bail pleas and remanded them in judicial custody on Monday morning.
