Woman gang-raped by four youths in Phulbani
Phulbani: A woman was allegedly gang-raped by four youths near Chakapada-Phulbani road in Kandhamal district on Thursday.
According to available information, the incident took place near Karadakhala under Chakapada police limits. The accused gang-raped the woman on the pretext of dropping her at Phulbani, on their motorcycle.
Sources said the youths offered lift to the women while she was standing alone near Karadakhala. The woman, however, agreed to go with them as one of the accused was known to her.
The youths took the woman on their motorcycle but halted near Tikabali to consume liquor. Later, instead of going to Phulbani, the youths returned back to Karadakhala along with the woman.
The accused youths forcibly took the woman to an abandoned house in the area where they gagged her and took turns to rape her. They also robbed her of Rs 7000 before fleeing the spot.
As per available information, the survivor has been admitted to a nearby hospital where her health condition is stated to be critical.
