Pipili case: Charge sheet filed against dismissed cop
Bhubaneswar, May 11 (IANS) Odisha Police Friday filed a charge sheet in a local court against a dismissed police officer for allegedly not taking action in the Pipili gangrape case.
The charge sheet was filed against Amulya Kumar Champatiray in the court of judicial magistrate in Pipili, 16 km from here, the police's crime branch said in a statement.
Champatiray, who was inspector in-charge of the Pipili Police station in Puri district, is accused of not registering a case after a 19-year-old woman was allegedly gangraped by some people near her village Arjunagoda, 10 km from Bhubaneswar, Nov 28 last year.
The crime branch has so far arrested four people in the case. It filed a charge sheet against them in March but said that there was no evidence of rape.
However, according to the woman's family, she was gangraped by a group who had earlier assaulted her in 2008 and against whom she had filed a molestation case.
The incident came to light when the woman was denied proper treatment at a hospital.
It also created a political storm, prompting Agriculture Minister Pradeep Maharathy to resign Jan 19 on moral grounds after the opposition and the girl's family alleged that he was protecting the accused.
The incident is being investigated by the crime branch and a one-man judicial commission headed by a retired judge of the Orissa High Court.
