First year MBBS student raped in medical college campus

Bhubaneswar: A first year female MBBS student of a private medical college was allegedly raped in the college campus here, police said.

The female student in her FIR at Mancheswar Police Station alleged that she was raped by a peon of the college while she was returning to hostel yesterday night.

“We have arrested a man based on the complaint of the girl. Both the victim and the accused have undergone a medical examination,” Bhubaneswar Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Satyabrata Bhoi told reporters adding that the police have also recorded the statement of the victim under Section 161 CrPC.

The private medical college chairman Tirupati Panigrahi said: “The incident that occurred at around 7.30 pm yesterday came to the light at around 12 pm. The girl did not know the peon s name. We identified the accused and handed him over to the police.”

The accused has been identified as Manoj Khuntia, a resident from Athagarh in Cuttack district, police said.

Khuntia claimed that he is innocent and allegations against him are false and baseless.

“At around 9 PM last night, I saw the girl student and her male friend in a compromising position, while I was coming from the canteen after having my dinner. I shouted on them and told that I would take up the matter with the Principal,” said Khuntia.

Khuntia said: “They requested me not to reveal the matter before anyone and promised that they would never commit same thing in college campus. Later, I went to my room, but the police brought me here at around 4 AM today.

    If it really happened it is quite disheartening, but there should not at the same time reverse victimisation if things turn out to be the way as peon alleges.Anu punitive action should be without falls.Whoever is guilty really should be punished,at the same time, innocent. People should not be punished

  2. What about poor peons response.It needs investigation.
