BHUBANESWAR: A group of women’s rights activists gathered in front of the Mahila Police Station here on Monday demanding action against the owner of a finance company who allegedly raped one of his employees.

The woman, a native of Kujang in Paradip, had joined the company at Laxmi Sagar as a trainer a few weeks ago.On July 11, while she was having lunch at her home in Laxmi Sagar, the  employer arrived and forced her to inhale a sedative drug which left her unconscious. On regaining consciousness, she realised that she was raped, the complaint stated.

The FIR was registered at Mahila Police Station on July 12 following which she was sent to Capital Hospital for medical examination.

The 24-year-old woman alleged that though the incident occurred 10 days back, police are yet to arrest the company’s Director, who has been named in the FIR.

Meanwhile, the employer has registered a counter FIR that his office was ransacked by some friends of the woman.

“The first FIR was lodged by the employer and later the woman came up with her complaint. So we are investigating all angles in the case. Besides, the medical report of the complainant is also awaited to ascertain the allegation made by her,” said Police Commissioner RP Sharma.
