Bhubaneswar: A college student has allegedly been raped by a school teacher in a forest in Odisha’s Sambalpur district, the police said on Wednesday. The girl lodged a complaint at the Kuchinda police station, accusing the teacher of raping her in a forest in the area. The incident occurred on July 11 when the girl was going to her college. However, the matter came to light on Wednesday after the girl lodged a complaint after finding out that a video of the alleged incident was doing the rounds on social media. According to the complaint, the teacher asked the girl to accompany him to a shooting site where album songs were being filmed. However, the man took her to a forest and allegedly raped her. In another incident, the Sundargarh police have arrested four persons for gang-raping a college student. The victim was allegedly gang-raped by five youth, including three of her classmates. They allegedly raped the girl inside a forest while she was returning home on June 26. While the three classmates and another accused were arrested, the police are searching the fifth accused.
