Puri: Police have apprehended a total of six persons with the arrest of two more persons today in connection with gang-rape of a 16-year-old girl in a government quarter at police reserve line in Puri.
Reportedly, police have arrested a couple–Ranjit Parida and Soumya Sefalika, informed Puri SP Umashankar Das today.
Earlier, three persons were arrested in connection with the case while one more accused was nabbed from Rayagada yesterday.
On December 3, the victim was waiting at the Nimapara bus stand, around 30 km from Puri, when the prime accused along with two other persons offered her lift. Later, they took the girl to the government quarter at the police reserve line and outraged her modesty.
The victim, however, managed to escape from the spot as the accused were in an inebriated condition.
