18-Year-Old Nabarangpur Girl Assaulted, Groped & Forcibly Married Off, Video Goes Viral

Nabarangpur: Two days back, a girl aged about 18 years had to come to sister’s home for celebrating Kali Puja. Little did this teenager knew that she would experience a beastly act allegedly orchestrated by her sister’s brother-in-law.

The case in point is about a girl from Chittabeda village under Raighar police limits in Nabarangpur district who came to Sonepur DNK village on November 7 along with her brother-in-law on the occasion of Kali Puja.

The same day at around 10 pm, while she was conversing with a friend in the backyard, her sister’s brother-in-law Prasanjit Haldar pulled her and levelled baseless allegations, the FIR registered by the Police in this case stated.

“I was dragged out and produced before a group of villagers at an undisclosed location where, several youths, assaulted and groped me at their free will. The entire ordeal was being video-graphed, while I was pleading for mercy,” the girl said, sobbing.

“My sister’s brother-in-law Prasanjit is the key conspirator of this ghastly incident. Later the group forced me to marry a stranger. He put sindoor on my forehead and carried out some formalities similar to a wedding,” the victim added. While the girl was crying for help, the youths around were giggling and busy with their cell phones capturing her desperation.

While the girl and her family maintained a mum for a day, on realising that a video of her ordeal was making rounds in the locality, they approached the police, reports stated. On the basis of a complaint lodged by the victim, Raighar police have registered a case and launched a search to nab the perpetrators of the ghastly crime. “A case has been registered under Sections 341, 323, 354, 509, 506, and 34 of the IPC and Section 66 of the Electronics and IT Act,” the police said.
