Jagatsinghpur, November 7 (LocalWire): Unable to bear constant harassment and blackmailing, a 23-year old woman committed suicide by hanging herself in Tentoi under Naugaon police station.
The woman was being harassed by 32-years old Deepak Beura of the same village who wanted to marry her.
However, when the girl and her family members rejected his marriage proposal, an infuriated Beura started to threaten them.
He also entered the girl’s house in the absence of her parents and allegedly took nude photographs of her and threatened to kill her and the family members if she disclosed the incident to anyone.
The man started blackmailing her and again proposed marriage which the girl refused. Infuriated by her rejection Beura pasted the nude photograph on the wall of her house.
When the girl’s parent lodged a complaint of harassment and blackmailing against the man at the local police station last month, the villagers intervened in the presence of police and assured that they will help sort out the matter.
Meanwhile, the parents decided to send the girl to their relative’s house in village Narisima under the same police station, but the man started to harass her there as well again pasted her nude photograph on the wall of her relative’s house, forcing the women to return home.
Beura pasted the photograph again on the wall of her house on Wednesday and also threatened to kill all family members, driving the girl to commit suicide by hanging herself.
The family came to know about her death only in the morning when she did not open the door of her room, and they had to break open it.
The victim’s father Sakuli Das has lodged an FIR against Beura for sexual harassment, humiliation, blackmailing and forcing her daughter to commit suicide.
“The police have registered a case of suicide in this connection and started to investigate the matter,” Naugaon police station inspector-in-charge Prajnaritambhara Kar said, adding that the police have sent her body to Jagatsinghpur Hospital for postmortem.
