A 16-year-old girl has committed suicide at her home in a Cuttack village after an Intermediate second year student allegedly uploaded an MMS of their sexual act on a pornographic website, police said.

Father of the girl lodged a complaint with the police accusing 18-year-old Kamalakanta Mall of blackmailing his daughter and creating circumstances that forced her to take the extreme step. The girl, who had written her Class X examinations last month, had consumed poison at her home on Wednesday night.

“The accused secretly filmed my daughter while she was going for morning ablutions and while taking bath. He then forced her to have a sexual relationship with him. My daughter committed suicide out of shame,” the girl’s father said in the police complaint, adding the accused also filmed his sexual act with the victim on a cellphone.

The accused even uploaded the clip on a porn site, which was viewed by a cousin of the victim. The boy and his family members had fled their home by the time the FIR was lodged.

Suryakanta Ray, Sub-divisional police officer of Salepur, said there were two meetings called by the village elders on the video clip controversy. “It was decided that the accused would marry the victim. But after the second meeting on Wednesday night, the accused refused to marry her,” he said.

The incident has come at a time when the CBI is investigating a slew of MMS clips of girls being sexually exploited.

Last month the CBI had arrested one Kalia Sahu, a Bhubaneswar-based builder, and his friend Debashis Dev on charges of sexually exploiting a girl and filming the act. The incident reportedly happened in 2010.

While Sahu exploited the victim, Dev filmed the act. The video clip was uploaded on a porn site and also circulated through WhatsApp.

Last week, Orissa Chief Secretary G C Pati was censured by the Supreme Court over the government’s failure in stopping the circulation of a rape video on the social media.
