Bhubaneswar: Union Tribal Affairs Minister Jual Oram today attacked Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik for ordering a judicial probe into the alleged Kundili gangrape case and said the CM’s announcement is just a farce.

Oram said that the State Government is playing drama in the case involving a minor tribal girl.

“What was the State Government doing for so many days? Why it declared that the girl wasn’t raped 27 days after the complaint was lodged. The judicial probe order bears no meaning at all. The Government is doing drama only,” said Oram while addressing the media persons.

He also questioned that why the Chief Minister didn’t ordered judicial probe from day one.
Oram said people will give a befitting reply at an appropriate time.

Notably, the minor tribal girl, a class IX student of Sarispadar Sevashram School, and a resident of Musaguda village under Pottangi police limits, had alleged that she was kidnapped and gang-raped by four armed security personnel, who were in jungle patch uniform in Lanjiguda forest while returning from Kunduli on October 10.
