Bhubaneswar: A peon of a Bhubaneswar based private medical college was arrested by the police on the grounds of raping a first year medical student. The victim was returning from a ramp show conducted in the college on Tuesday evening.

The peon has been identified as Manoj Khatua hailing from Athagarh in Cuttack. He had been in the service for the last one year.

However, the accused has refuted these allegations and has accused her co-student to be involved in such a crime.

According to Manoj, "I witnessed the girl having physical intimacy with the boy last evening. I even threatened them to inform about the incident to the principal in the morning. So they framed me for the crime."

The police have started its investigation. They have recorded the statement of the victim. The medical examination of the accused and the victim has been done. The police have also recorded the statement of the victim under Section 161 CrPC.

Tirupati Panigrahi, owner of the private medical college informed, "When we got information regarding this incident at around 2 am, it was attended immediately by the CEO and the parents of the victim were also informed. Then the police was summoned.As the girl was unable to pinpoint the name of the accused, she was able to identify through some of his identification marks. Then we handed over the accused to the police who arrested him."

"The hostel superintendent and the CEO accompanied the girl student and her mother to the police station to file an FIR," he further added.
