Borigumma: An 18-year-old differently-abled girl was allegedly raped and impregnated in Nuaguda village of Sasahandi panchayat in Borigumma block of Koraput district.
According to police, the parents of the victim recently lodged a complaint after discovering that she was pregnant. The mentally and physically challenged girl is now nine months pregnant. She is unable to tell anything about the man who had committed the heinous crime.
According to sources, the girl belongs to a poor family and her parents work as daily wager. The victim’s parents used to go outside for work every day while she stayed at home alone. Taking the opportunity of her aloneness, the miscreant had physically assaulted and impregnated her.
The victim’s father lodged a complaint in this regard at Kotpad police station following which a case was registered.
Initially, the victim’s parents brought the issue to the notice of the villagers. As the gram sabha (village meeting) failed to resolve the issue, they approached the police.
The police on Friday took the girl to the district headquarters hospital and got her medical examination conducted. Further inquiry is underway, the police said.
