Mentally Challenged Dalit Woman Allegedly Raped in Puri, Odisha


A mentally challenged woman from the Dakhina Bhoisahi area of Puri in Odisha was allegedly raped by a local man. The incident came to light after one of the woman's relatives saw her being accompanied by a man into the nearby forest. He informed others who found her in the forest after a two-three hour search. She was half-naked when she was found and the rapist had left the scene by that time.

The survivor was accompanied by her relatives and police to the local hospital for a medical check-up the next morning.
