SAMBALPUR: In a gang rape incident in Bamra police station area of
Sambalpur district, police is yet to arrest one of the four accused
persons even after a year. The incident had taken place in the railway
station and a case was registered by the GRP. Saying the accused was
"absconding", police did not even bother to charge-sheet him.

"We are trying to nab the accused but since he remains absconding, we
are unable to place charge-sheet against the culprit. However efforts
are on to nab the accused," a senior cop of the Jharsuguda railway
police said.

Sources said the victim, a minor Dalit girl from Reamal (Deogarh), had
gone to Bamra railway station with her family to board a train to
Chakradharpur on January 20, 2011. But incidentally all night trains
along the route were cancelled that day due to some security reason.
The girl and her family stayed at the waiting room to catch the
morning train. In the night, however, four men barged into the waiting
room in an inebriated condition and commanded the family to get out as
they were unable to produce train tickets. They forcefully took away
the girl to a neighbouring abandoned railway quarter, where they raped
her one after the other. They left the place after the incident.

The matter came to public notice after a local women's organization
lodged a complaint with the Jharsuguda GRP the next day.
