Puri: In what can be described as a highly shameful incident, a girl has been molested publicly by a cop during Adap Mandap darshan of deities at the Gundicha Temple here on Sunday.
The victim took to Facebook alleging that she had gone to the temple along with her father and standing in a queue, taking advantage of the rush a cop touched her in her private parts. Seeing a policeman on duty doing such mischief, she got furious, dragged him by his collar and slapped him a couple of times.
However, during her ordeal, though the women police personnel knew about the incident, they did not come to her rescue, she alleged. She has urged the Chief Minister and the Prime Minister to take stringent action against the errant cop.
Meanwhile, Odisha Police DG KB Singh has asked Puri SP Sarthak Sarangi to investigate the incident on the basis of CCTV footage and take action accordingly.
