Kendrapara: An undertrial
prisoner of the jail here has complained to the authorities
that he was sodomised by a fellow prisoner, the police said
on Wednesday.

After the 20-year-old under-trial prisoner lodged a
written complaint that he had been sodomised by fellow
prisoner Sanjay Mallick, the accused was booked, said Ranjan
Kumar Dey, Inspector, Kendrapara sub-jail.

The incident, according to the complaint, occurred on
yesterday night.

Both the victim and the accused were subjected to
medical examination, Dey said.

The victim had drawn the attention of other inmates
towards the sexual assault on him, sparking tension in the
prison, he said.

The accused Mallick has been segregated and put in
another cell after a local court forwarded him yet again to
jail, said officials.
