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)
