New Delhi: A 50-year-old Delhi Police assistant sub-inspector has been arrested for allegedly raping the domestic help of his friend, police said on Saturday. A court here sent the accused to 14 days’ judicial custody.

The incident took place on Thursday night in west Delhi’s Rani Bagh when Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Jagveer Singh, who is deputed to the Punjabi Bagh police station, went to his friend’s place and assaulted the 23-year-old victim under the influence of alcohol.

Jagveer was held after the victim approached police on Friday and filed a written complaint against him, police said.

“After victim’s medical examination which confirmed rape, the ASI was arrested,” said a police officer.

Investigations have revealed that the accused met the woman’s employer a few months ago during the investigation of a case and befriended him.

“On the day of the incident, the accused visited his friend’s house and stayed there after a party.

“The woman was asked by her employer to take ASI Singh to the guest room where the accused raped her. He also threatened her with dire consequences if she informed anyone about the incident,” said the officer.

The woman later called the police control room and informed about the incident. A case was registered on Friday.

When asked about it on Saturday, Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi said: “We will not wait for a departmental inquiry. The ASI will be dismissed. Any violence against a woman will not be tolerated.” (IANS)

Don’t Play Politics With Rape Incidents

Now even the rape case is taken as a mean for those political ends. Therefore, any incidents of rape are interpreted and handled in unethical ways.

Most of the political moves in the world are guided by self-interest. Here the human prudence is just trampled over and thus many hearts are hurt.  This fact is true to the letter in the Indian political sphere. Yes, our leaders easily trade their souls to meet their ends.  National interests are just bet — even with the enemy fold. Media and celebrities are often used for the job.  What more, even education is politicized, radically distorted to fit in with the “mission”.

Now even the rape case is taken as a mean for those political ends. Therefore, any incidents of rape are interpreted and handled in unethical ways. The moment a rape occurs, the political leaders take sides accordingly, so also the media. The Kathua rape had become a case of crises for the ruling party. It was a low point between the opposition parties and the government. The opposition leaders hurled the criticism against the BJP.  But it’s becoming much clearer now that the case was specifically “used” as a tool to sever the bond between the Hindu and the Muslim for the political gain. All available methods were tactfully employed then to defame the government, nay even the nation. What harm it has done is beyond the mental calculation.

Now even the rape case is taken as a mean for those political ends. Therefore, any incidents of rape are interpreted and handled in unethical ways.

Please look at the following cases which did not prompt such drama, though much more serious then the Kathus’s case. Very recently a gruesome rape was committed in Nadia district, West Bengal by a TMC activist Sheikh Bappa where a six-month pregnant relative of a BJP candidate was the victim. But no such uproar heard. In another appalling case, a Maulavi sexually abused “six children” at a Madrassa in Telangana.  But can you believe, this case totally failed to evoke the sympathy of so-called great people, nor did the media carry the news? All columnists went into hibernation. But why? Again, in Jharkhand, one dairy owner Ashif Iqbal raped his employee, tried to convert her to Islam by forcefully making her eat beef. He also threatened to kill her girl child. It never became an issue. Have you heard that another Kathua-like case happened in Khajuraho at Rajnagar about two weeks back? But no media thought it is worth the tears of the country’s citizens as an Asifa’s case.  This sadistic crime on a 3-year-old girl was committed by 19-year-old Tauhid Khan. Police have filed a case against Tauhid Khan.  Why are this time Bollywood stars not beating the breast and condemning the crime? Why are there “different prisms” to look at the same kind of crimes? Is this not a very dangerous trend? Please book the criminals who are raping the society.
