Widow Raped In Nayagarh, Accused Arrested

Nayagarh: A widow was allegedly raped by a man at Ranpur area in Nayagarh district on Tuesday night.

The woman thereafter raised an alarm following which her neighbours rushed to the spot and rescued her.

Basing on the complaint lodged by the woman regarding the crime, police swung into action and managed to arrest the accused.

A similar incident was reported from the same Ranpur area of the district on Monday when a minor girl was allegedly raped by one Kathia Nayak of Taria village here. The incident happened when the child had gone to answer nature’s call to a cashew orchard near her house.

However, the accused went absconding after committing the crime.
