A year after a 15-year-old Dalit girl of Bolangir district was allegedly raped and murdered by unknown people, the Odisha government recommended a CBI probe into the incident Friday.

The deceased being a Dalit girl, there is every reason to believe outburst of inter-communal rift and ill-feeling due to non-detection of the case,” the state government wrote in a letter to the MHA while recommending a CBI probe.
