Bhawanipatna: A video of an Auxillary Nurse Midwife (ANM) student getting gang-raped has been doing rounds on social media. The incident occurred near Jaring forest near National Highway-26 between Junagarh and Bhawanipatna.

Reportedly the victim was at Bhawanipatna for some personal work and missed her bus for her return. She sought help from an acquaintance and took a ride in his car. They were stopped mid-way by miscreants who had their faces covered. The miscreants then raped the woman and threatened her and her friend with dire consequences if they ever spoke on this matter.

Once the video made news the victim has reportedly filed an FIR, informed Minister of State (Home) Dibya Shankar Mishra. He is also in touch with Junagarh SP and ADG Crime Branch for speedy inquiry into the matter.

Previously, taking cognizance action, the Junagarh Police had initiated an investigation. They had also taken one into custody for interrogation.
