Berhampur: A home guard working under the Orissa Police was today arrested on the charges of having an "illicit relationship" with a neighbouring minor girl, who recently committed suicide, police said.

The home guard identified as T Venkatraman, working at Chhatrapur, though married, had allegedly made the 15-year-old girl of Badapalli village under Khalikote block, pregnant.

The girl, staying at her uncle's house at the New Police Colony, was found hanging on Monday.

"Though it was initially suspected that her bad performance in the examination could be the reason behind the suicide, the postmortem report later revealed that she was pregnant with two months," said Inspector-in-charge of Chhatrapur police station S C Buruda.

After a subsequent investigation, police claims to have evidence of the home guard's sexual relationship with the girl.
