“As a daughter, I have done my duty and stood by family, built a house and even gifted a car to my sister,” said she.

On Sunday, Dutee had revealed that she has been in a same-sex relationship with a girl from her village Chaka Gopalpur village in Jajpur district the past three years thereby inviting the ire of the family.

“As adult, I have every right to take my own decision. We are happy together. I am not committing any mistakes that are illegal,” said Dutee.
