Normalcy returns, but scars remain

September 01, 2008
A face that will haunt her -- and India -- for a long time. Namrata was attacked by alleged VHP men at Raikia in Orissa's Kandhamal district. She, along with her family, fled to the village to seek refuge from the ramapaging miscreants.

Meanwhile, normalcy has gradually returned to Kandhamal with no major violent incidents being reported so far.

Many people, who fled to forests fearing attacks, have been returning to relief camps, sources said.
