Odisha rape victim suicide: BJP, Congress call for day-long bandh today

A 14-year-old tribal girl, who had alleged that "four men in uniform" had raped her three months ago in Odisha's Koraput district, was found dead in her home on Monday. Her family said they found her hanging in an unconscious state when they returned home.

Both the BJP and the Congress have called for a dawn-to-dusk bandh in the Koraput district on Wednesday, demanding that the Biju Janata Dal-led state government order a Central Bureau of Investigation inquiry into the case.

Earlier, chief minister Naveen Patnaik expressed his condolence on the girl's death and said: "I am seeing what best can be done."
