Bhubaneswar, Jan 16 (PTI) National Commission for Scheduled Castes
(NCSC) will send a team to Odisha to inquire into the rape of the 19
year-old dalit girl in Pipili, an incident which is rocking the
Odisha. "This is an unfortunate incident. The NCSC will send a team to
Odisha in a day or to inquire into the matter," its chairman P L Punia
told PTI over phone from Delhi. Expressing his concern over the manner
in which the state police handled the incident which barely 20 km from
the state capital, Punia said such type of incidents were repeatedly
taking place in the state. "The state government is not taking
appropriate action in such kind of incidents," he said. Earlier,
Odisha State Scheduled Caste-Scheduled Tribe Youth and Student
Council, in a memorandum to NCSC demanded adequate protection and
monetary relief to the rape victim. "We hope NCSC will give direction
to the state government about providing security and relief to the
victim's family," said council president Haladhar Sethy. Offical
sources here said Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has assured a group of
JNU students agitating in front of his residence in New Delhi that
'stringent action' will be taken against the persons involved in the
incident. PTI AAM KK
