As per the report, the accused identified as Saroj Parida, son of Jalandhar Parida of the same village barged into the victim’s house late on April 9 and assaulted her sexually.
The incident took place while the victim’s mother-in-law and two daughters had been to watch staging of opera in a nearby village.
A complaint in connection with the rape was lodged at Bolagarh Police Station by the victim’s husband after he reached the spot and knew about the matter.
However, the victim’s family have alleged that while four days have already passed since the lodging of the complaint, police are yet to act against the accused.
“I was alone at home on the fateful night when he barged into my room by breaking window panes. Later, he tried to rape me. As I showed some resistance he thrashed me mercilessly due to which I bled from mouth and nose. He overpowered and sexually assaulted me subsequently. I demand stringent action against him. Police is not acting against him,” alleged the victim.
“While police have turned deaf ear to our complaint the accused father has started issuing us with death threats. He has also warned to rape the victim and her mother-in-law if the case is not withdrawn,” alleged the victim’s husband.
