3 Forest Officials Detained For Rape Bid On Woman

Balasore: Three forest guards were brutally beaten up after locals caught them while attempting to rape a woman forest guard at Tenda village of Nilagiri in Balasore on Friday night.
Four forest officials had allegedly attempted to rape the woman, who was sleeping along with her minor daughter on scaffolding erected to keep a watch on paddy crops and protect it from wild animals.

The matter came to light after the woman raised an alarm after the accused forest officials tried to sexually assault her. Though three forest officials were detained, one managed to escape from the spot.

 The woman's husband was not present at the temporary structure when the incident occurred.

'We want justice as the forest officials have committed the offence,' said the woman's brother.

Dinabandhu Mohant, assistant sub-inspector of Nilagiri police station informed that a detailed inquiry will be conducted basing on the complaint filed by the woman's family.
