Bhubaneswar, Dec 21, 2012 (PTI)

A 19-year-old girl was allegedly gangraped by five persons at a secluded house here, police said today.

The incident took place on Wednesday night when the girl was returning home in the city after a dance session at a hotel. A part-time dancer, the girl earns her livelihood by singing and dancing in parties, they said.

According to an FIR lodged by the girl at the Mahila Police Station here, a 50-year-old man identified as Jatadhari Sahu invited her to discuss about a dance programme. She was taken to a house where four others were waiting.

"The girl was allegedly gangraped by the five and dumped at a place near Kalinga Stadium," Inspector-in-Charge of Mahila Police Station Amita Tripathy told reporters here quoting the FIR copy.

Stating that medical examination of the girl was conducted, Tripathy said police today arrested four accused-- Jatadhari Sahu, Biranchi Narayan Das Mohapatra (39), Subrat Das (28) and Sangram Keshari Pradhan (28), while the fifth accused was absconding. Sahu runs a private security agency, while the others are engaged in petty trade.
They were produced before a court here and remanded in jail custody.
