Bhubaneswar: The National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) would soon send a team to Odisha to inquire into the alleged gang rape of a 19-year-old Dalit girl at Pipili in Puri district on November 28, 2011.

Talking to the mediapersons on Monday, Commission Chairman P L Punia said “The Odisha Government continued to be indifferent to the plight of the Scheduled Caste (SC) and Scheduled Tribe (ST) people in the State. We have been receiving complaints regularly.”

“This is an unfortunate incident. The NCSC will send a team to Odisha in a day to inquire into the matter” he added.
