SAMBALPUR: Police arrested a lawyer from Jharsuguda on Sunday in
connection with the mysterious death of a Dalit girl, who allegedly
died after consuming poison on Saturday night.

Police suspect the death of the girl to be linked with a blue film
racket in the region, refraining from divulging further details on the
matter at this juncture, however. "We are still at the preliminarily
stage of the investigations in this case. But we have registered a
case and arrested one person in connection with the death of the
girl," said Jharsuguda police station inspector Kailash Acharya.

The girl, identified as Padmini (18) of Remunda village under
Lakhanpur police station of Jharsuguda district, was said to be a
regular visitor to the house of one Uttara Gardia of Sarbahal area of
Jharsuguda town, who worked as a lawyer, police said. On Saturday
night, Uttara and two of his friends admitted the girl to a local
hospital in a critical condition. They told the hospital staff she had
consumed poison in an attempt to commit suicide. Uttara and his
friends left the hospital soon after admitting the girl, who died a
few hours later while undergoing treatment in the hospital.

"We have sent the body for autopsy and are waiting for the report to
conduct further investigation," inspector Acharya said.

The girl was forced to attempt suicide when she found herself in a
blue film being circulated in Jharsuguda town, shot in a hotel room.
The couple who appeared in the film resembled the deceased and Uttara,
sources said.
