A minor died after consuming poison following continuous harassment from a youth in Odisha
Bhubaneswar: A minor girl in Odisha died after she took poison as she was unable to bear the harassment from a youth.
It is reported that the youth used to harass the minor in the absence of her parents and when the matter was reported to police, they did nothing.
According to family, the accused had made life worse and created a hostile environment for the victim outside her home because of which she looked depressed and could not step out of the house fearing humiliation.
The family said they had reported the matter to the officials of Bhapur police outpost on July 1 itself but the case was not registered and worst is that the police failed to take their complaint.
“The youth used to harass my daughter and we had reported the matter to Bhapur outpost officials in Dhenkanal district. However, they did not take any action on our complaint,” victim's mother was quoted as saying in a report.
Following the incident, police have arrested the youth and are investigating.
