TRANSFER SARGIPALI RAPE, MURDER TO CBI’
Saturday, 20 June 2015 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
Members of the local Jatio Nari Atyachar Birodhi Sangarsh Samannwaya Samiti, led by noted social activist Prafulla Samantara, CPI(ML) politburo member Sivaram, Surdas Bag and Abhiram Mallick, on Friday held a protest march in the town demanding a CBI inquiry into the brutal rape and murder of minor girl of Sargipali and compensation of Rs 20 lakh to the victim’s family.
They also demanded trial of all SC/ST atrocity cases in Fast Track Court, declaration of Khaprakhol as an atrocity-prone area and efficient functioning of the district vigilance and monitoring committee.
The protesters raised slogans against the Balangir police for its inability to arrest the culprits even though 25 days have elapsed since the occurrence of the incident. They submitted a memorandum on the issue to the district administration.
The incident of brutal rape and murder of the minor girl has shocked the conscience of all sections of people here. Unless the police arrest the culprits within 24 hours, there would be further agitation, warned Prafulla Samantara.
When contacted, Balangir SP Dr Deepak Kumar said, “We have got some vital clues, and we hope to nab the culprits and crack the case soon.”
