Balasore, May 28: In what can be termed very shameful, a lady police Constable was allegedly sexually assaulted by none other than her senior officer in a police outpost in Balasore district recently.
According to information, the ghastly incident has occurred in Popalpur police outpost in the district. Outpost Officer-in-charge officer Banshidhar Pradhan has been arrested on the charge of sexually assaulting a lady Constable while they were on Cyclone Yaas duty.
