City buses in two more routes in Bargarh, Jharsuguda

The Western Odisha Urban Transport Service Limited, which is in charge of city bus services in western Odisha, has decided to extend city bus service up to Barpali in Bargarh district and industrial towns of Brajarajnagar and Belpahar in Jharsuguda district.

The authorities have decided to procure five new buses for the purpose.

Currently, city buses are plying on the Sambalpur-Jharusguda and Sambalpur-Bargarh routes while the five new buses, which would be procured shortly, would ply on the new routes. On January 29 last year, the city bus service was launched with six buses in the city. At present, a total of 29 buses are running on 11 routes.

According to sources, of the five proposed new buses while two would run on the Sambalpur-Bargarh-Barpali route and the rest three would run on Sambalpur-Jharsuguda-Brajarjnagar-Belphar route.

Popco is a private operator, which has partnered with the Odisha Government to run and manage the city buses.

Couple arrested for torturing tribal maidservant

Police on Saturday raided the house of a couple at Belpahar, Jharsuguda to arrest them on charges of sexually harassing their tribal maid servant, who is a minor. The couple, however, managed to give police the slip.

The accused, Mukul Singh, an employee of Belpahar-based TRL Krosaki Refractory Limited, and his wife, Archana, from Bihar, had allegedly recorded a nude video of the 16-year-old girl and threatened her of making it public in case she left the house. The matter came to light after the girl managed to flee, and narrated her plight before her parents.

“We have registered a case against the couple basing on the complaint by the victim’s father on Friday,” Brajarajnagar SDPO Chudamani Nayak said on Sunday.

Angry over the incident, locals on Saturday blocked a highway near Belpahar and demanded immediate arrest of the couple. “We have launched a manhunt to nab the couple. A police team has also been sent to their native place in Bihar,” Nayak said.

Police said Singh and his wife had engaged the girl two years back. She was tortured if she failed to do any work, the girl has said in her complaint.
