Cuttack: A juvenile was detained by college students during an alleged rape attempt on a minor girl behind Biswanath Pandit Central Library at Khan Nagar in Cuttack and handed over to police on Saturday.
Reportedly, around 500 students were studying in the library when they heard the cries of the minor girl. When few of them peeped out of a window they found a boy attempting to outrage her modesty.
All the students rushed to the spot and rescued the girl and caught hold of the boy who was attempting to flee from the spot. The students immediately called the police and handed over the minor girl and the boy to them.
Mother of the boy informed that he is mentally ill. As she and the minor girl’s mother are from same profession, their children always stay together. She can’t ascertain if her son has done the crime.
