Two technical students accused of raping a minor fellow girl student were produced before the special court for women at Sundargarh town on Friday evening. RN Pali police said though the crime was committed on August 23, the victim’s brother filed a complaint on Thursday night. The third accused is absconding.
Zone-II DSP RK Mishra said the 17-year-old girl is a second year student of the Government ITI (Industrial Training Institute) at Rourkela where principal accused Govinda Gardia (20) and the second accused Amit Rohidas Kullu also study.
Mishra said the girl belonging to Lathikata stated that on the fateful day, she was on her way to the bus stop at around 1.30 pm when Govinda and his brother came on a motorcycle and offered her lift.
Instead of taking her to her destination, they forcibly took her to a rented house at Chhend Colony. Govinda committed the crime while Amit gagged her mouth and pinned her hands down. Govinda’s brother was standing guard outside all the while, Mishra said.
Though it is alleged that the sexual act was videographed, the DSP said it was not mentioned in the complaint and police investigation could not find any evidence.
A case under multiple sections of IPC including kidnap and rape along with the provision of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act was registered.
