Pipli rape: Chargesheet against dismissed cop



Bhubaneswar: A charge sheet was on Friday filed against a dismissed police inspector for criminal liability in the Pipli rape case of a 19-year-old Dalit girl in Odisha's Puri district.

The charge sheet against dismissed inspector Amulya Kumar Champatiray was submitted by the state police's Crime Branch in the court of judicial magistrate at Pipili under SC & ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.

Champatiray, who was officiating as inspector in-charge at the Pipili police station when the incident took place on November 28 last year, had allegedly neglected the offence committed against the girl.

Due to the alleged negligence of the inspector, prompt police action and consequent medical treatment could not be provided to the victim.

Four persons have been arrested for the alleged rape of the girl at Arjungada village. The victim was transferred from one hospital to another and was later administered anti-venom medicine after which she slipped into coma.
