Bhubaneswar: In a shocking incident, a man attempts to self immolate after feeling depressed over an attempt to rape over his minor daughter. This incident occurred 10 days back but the wife of the man has filed a complaint against the accused in Khandagiri today.

“First, I had to look after my husband’s health. Only after he was stable, I came to lodge a complaint against the man who tried to rape my daughter and caused this terrible condition of my husband,” said the man's wife.

Notably, the Std-VIII student was watching TV after returning from school and was all alone in her house as both parents had gone to work. A youth named Pintu Behera (Tian) had barged into the home and tried to assault her sexually.

“He muzzled my mouth with his hands and tried to unclothe me. My father came in for lunch at that time, so he fled. My father went behind him,” said the victim girl.

The man went behind the culprit only to be barred by his family members.

“Pintu’s aunt hurled abuses to my husband and also spoke a lot of objectionable things about my daughter. Unable to take the insult, my husband came back and tried to self immolate. Some of my neighbours rushed him to the hospital. Now, after ten days, I have come to report the case and demand justice for my daughter and husband,” cried out the man’s wife.

Khandagiri PS IIC Himanshu Swain said, “We have started investigation into this incident.”
