Bhubaneswar: A young girl has survived an abduction bid at Acharya Vihar here in the city by successfully fighting with the kidnapper. 

The girl, who on Tuesday lodged a police complaint, said an unidentified man tried to abduct her at knife point while she was standing in front of her hostel in Acharya Vihar area in the early hours on Monday.

The victim had arrived here from Rayagada and was waiting for someone to open the main gate.

Unaware of the miscreant approaching her, she was speaking to someone over mobile phone. In no time, the man wearing a helmet to cover his identity approached her and put a knife on her neck.

The brave girl put up a fight against the assailant while he dragged her till some distance. 

After a brief struggle, the anti-social gave up and fled from the spot on a two-wheeler. The incident was captured on a CCTV camera installed outside the hostel.

Following this, the girl filed a complaint with the Saheed Nagar police station which is hardly 500 metres from the crime scene.

In her statement, the victim told police that around 3-4 people in a car at a distance also followed the motorcycle. The men in the vehicle might be a part of the plan, she suspected.
