Bhubaneswar DCP Anup K. Sahoo said the accused was arrested.

A woman was allegedly raped in a moving car and dumped in a critical condition near a college in Odisha’s Khurda district, police said.

Bhubaneswar DCP Anup K. Sahoo said the accused was arrested. “We cannot say for sure if more than one person was involved,” Superintendent of Police (Rural) Ajay Pratap Swain said.

The case, which was registered in Khurda, has been transferred to Khandagiri police station in Bhubaneswar, according to sources.

“Accused has been apprehended and car seized.

Investigation is on. Senior officers are monitoring investigation,” Sahoo tweeted.

Preliminary inquiry suggests that the woman was waiting for a bus at Khandagiri area in the State capital, when a youth apparently offered her a ride, which she accepted, the police sources said.

It seems “she was raped in a moving car and dumped near PN College in Khurda town”, Mr. Swain said.

“We cannot say for sure if more than one person was involved in the incident. She was found with injury marks on her body and her dress torn off,” the SP maintained. The woman was in a state of shock, he said.

“She is currently undergoing treatment at Khurda District Headquarters Hospital. We can get more details about the incident when the victim starts talking,” Mr. Swain said, adding that the matter was being probed from all angles.
