Cuttack: In a shocking incident, the body of a minor girl was found hanging inside her house in Kathjori Vihar Mundha Sahi under Markat Nagar police limits here on Wednesday morning. The girl had escaped from the clutches of kidnappers on Tuesday.

Reportedly, the girl and her elder sister, both school students, had been kidnapped a few days back. While she escaped, her elder sister is still missing. The family members had lodged a missing report at Markat Nagar police station when two girls had gone missing.

On Tuesday, when the minor girl made her way back from the clutches of her captors, she accompanied her mother and narrated her ordeal in front of the cops. She alleged that their 30-year-old neighbour Bijay Das alias Sania had kidnapped them. She also alleged that he had taken them to his brother-in-law’s house at Nuabazar where he raped her elder sister.

While cops launched a manhunt to nab the accused and rescue the elder sister, their mother has claimed that the younger one, who managed to escape, committed suicide by hanging herself fearing stigma.
