Sambalpur: A married woman was allegedly raped by a youth outside the City Railway station in Sambalpur on Wednesday.
The matter came to light after the victim lodged a complaint at the Dhanupalli police station on Thursday.
According to the complaint, the woman was waiting for the train at the Sambalpur City Railway station when a man outside the station met her and took her to the nearby bus stand on the pretext of providing her job. Meanwhile, another youth abducted the woman on a bus and took her forcibly to an isolated place where he outraged her modesty.
Later, she found herself dumped alongside the road who then walked to the Sadar police limits and narrated her ordeal.
On the basis of the complaint, Dhanupalli police have detained the accused youth for further interrogation into the matter.
Further probe into the matter is underway, police sources said.
