Though the girl was sexually assaulted by one Ranjan Nayak of the same village on 24 April, the matter came to light on Sunday when her father lodged a complaint, they said. On the basis of the FIR filed by the girl's father, police arrested Nayak on Sunday evening. Steps were taken for conducting medical examinations of the girl and the accused, they said.

Odisha has been witnessing a series of rape of minor girls in different areas including Balasore, Mayurbhanj, Ganjam and Jagatsinghpur districts. The issue had also rocked the state Assembly recently with opposition the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) creating ruckus and stalling proceedings.

Meanwhile, a 6-year-old rape victim of Salepur in Cuttack district died at the hospital on Sunday after battling for life for eight days, the police said.
