Dalit woman abuse case: 3 main accused nabbed

BALASORE: The Soro police today arrested three prime suspects in the
Dalit woman abuse case.
The barbaric incident had created state-wide revulsion over a month
back after it was reported in the media.
The accused have been identified as Baruda Jena, Sudarshan Khatua of
Bagudi and Padmalochan Mohanty of Mahumuhan village. They have been
produced in the court and remanded in judicial custody. Earlier, three
persons were arrested, said SP Rekha Lohani.
On October 14, the 25-year-old woman was dragged to a market place at
Bagudi near Soro and tied to a tree while a group of people thrashed
her. The incident was video shot. They branded her as a 'prostitute'
and claimed to have caught with a `customer'.
Claiming delay in police action against the culprits, the woman had
appealed to the Chief Minister for his intervention. Several women and
Dalit organisations had also rallied behind her.
Police, however, swung into action following repeated media reports.
"We had arrested three persons immediately after the incident. But the
prime suspects could not be arrested then as they were absconding,"
said OIC of Soro police station Manas Deo.
