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
