Kendrapara (Orissa): A pregnant woman,
hailing from here, today lodged a police complaint alleging
that a group of police personnel barged into her house last
night, molested her and beat up her two minor children.

In her complaint filed with the Kendrapara superintendent
of police, Anwara Biwi claimed that the policemen who came in
two jeeps broke open main gate of her house, hurled abusive
language at her, beat her with batons and molested her at
gunpoint.

According to her, the cops were from neighbouring
Jagatsinghpur district and did not even spare her minor son
and daughter.

While leaving the spot, the accused snatched away Rs
18,000 cash and jewellery. They also threatened of dire
consequence if the incident was made public, she alleged in
the petition.

The woman, who is pregnant, has been admitted to the
district headquarters hospital here.

There was no adult male member at the house at the time
of the incident as her spouse is working in Saudi Arabia.

Reacting to the charge, Kendrapara SP Narsunder Mishra
said, "I have taken up the complaint with my counterpart in
Jagatsinghpur district. The allegations, if found to be true,
are serious in nature. Then the errant cops would be taken to
task."
