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)

The National Capital and the regions around it continue to suffer a “very-poor” air quality on Friday, which according to experts, may worsen due to combined effects of Dussehra and meteorological reasons such as low winds in Delhi.

Between 6pm to 8pm, over 48 areas across the National Capital Region — 36 from Delhi alone — suffered ‘very poor air-quality’ with pollutants registering over four times the national safety standards.

Weather analysts say this may worsen as Delhi currently has very light variable winds with no definite directions, which is likely to help in aggregating the pollutants.

“Delhi has a negligible wind speed and morning temperatures are low. Also, many effigies were burnt across the region on Dussehera. This will push up the pollution levels,” said Mahesh Palawat, director private weather forecasting group, Skymet.

The air-quality was already ‘severe’ at Anand Vihar in east Delhi and Rohini in north Delhi, Bawana in northwest Delhi, Mundaka in West Delhi and Bhiwadi in Rajasthan, acoording to the real-time monitoring taken up around 8pm by Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB).

The average presence of major pollutant PM2.5 or particle with diametre less than 2.5mm, was 129 unit across Delhi-NCR and 133 units in Delhi, which is more than twice the national safe limits. Rohini was the most polluted with PM2.5 concentration at 166 units, about three times the safe limits.

The permissible range or PM2.5 is 60 as per national standards and 25 by the international standards.

At 4pm, the Air Quality Index (AQI) of Delhi was 276 marked ‘poor’ against ‘moderate’ mere 48 hours back.
