Chargesheet in Puri gang rape case to be filed within 20 days, says DIG
Puri: Chargesheet in Puri gang rape case will be filed within 20 days, said Central Range DIG Ashish Singh at a press conference on Tuesday.
Two perons, including prime accused Jitendra Sethi, were forwarded to court.
Besides, four teams have been formed and the case has been taken up on a priority basis. Singh also stated that they will seek the hearing of the case in a fast track court.
Police sources said that Sethi was dismissed from service in February by the then SP of Puri after multiple charges of misconduct, including physical harassment, were reported against him.
The DIG said that another case has been registered against accused Jitendra Sethi for possessing police ID card despite being dismissed from service. “Misusing of police ID card is a criminal offence. So another case has been registered against him in this connection.”
As per reports, the girl was waiting near Nimapara bus terminal to return to her home at Kakatpur in Puri district when four persons, one of them claiming to be a policeman, offered her help. Later, they allegedly abducted the girl and took her to government quarters near Jhadeswari Club and gang raped her.
