Orissa rape: NCW report points at police inaction

Bhubaneswar : Probing into the alleged gangrape of a Dalit girl in
Pipili block of Orissa's Puri district, the National Commission for
Women (NCW) has hauled up the local police station over its failure to
register the FIR.

The 18-year-old girl of Arjunagoda village was allegedly gangraped by
some local youths on November 28 last year. The assailants had then
tried to strangulate her which left the girl's cerebral cortex damaged
leaving her in a state of coma. The political storm that followed led
to the dismissal of Pipili police station inspector Amulya
Champatiray. Pipili MLA and Agriculture Minister Pradeep Maharathy had
to resign over allegations that he sheltered some of the accused.

The NCW, which sent its member secretary Anita Agnihotri to inquire
into the case, in its report said that had the FIR been filed, then
all the medical institutions involved could have been alerted and the
girl would have a continuity of medical attention.

Justifying the dismissal of the inspector as "deterrent action", the
NCW recommended that a directive may be issued by the home department
to the seniormost police officers advising them to ensure that all
cases of violence against women if reported are registered immediately
and taken as FIR.
