A 20-year-old woman from Jajpur district in Odisha was allegedly held captive and raped by four men for 12 days, according to a complaint filed by her with the police.

The police said one of the accused, an inhabitant of Kayana village in the district, was arrested on Thursday and three others are still at large.

The woman in her complaint said on Wednesday she was allegedly drugged, held captive and raped by the four men in different places, including in Bhubaneswar, for 12 days.

The inspector-in-charge of Binjharpur police station, SB Das said the woman had fallen in love with a man living in her locality a couple of months ago. The man entered into a physical relationship on pretext of marriage.

The man had allegedly called the woman on phone for their wedding in a temple in Jajpur on June 7 and took her to a house and raped her. Later, another men joined him and the victim was raped by them for two days, Das said.

The two men then took her to Bhubaneswar and kept her in a relative’s house where two other men joined them and raped the woman after drugging her, he said.

She managed to escape on June 19 evening and communicated her ordeal to her parents over phone, the police said, adding her family members rescued her from a place in Bhubaneswar and rushed her to a local hospital.

“We have recorded the statement of the woman and a case has been registered. One person has been arrested and search is on for the three other accused,” the police said.
