RO­HTAK : A 28-year-old Sonepat woman has ac­cused a head con­sta­ble of rap­ing her from past six years by threat­en­ing to up­load her pri­vate pic­tures and videos on the in­ter­net. The woman said she was in­tro­duced to the ac­cused cop through a friend and since then he had been rap­ing her by abus­ing his pow­ers of po­lice.

In her com­plaint sub­mit­ted at the city po­lice sta­tion, the woman said head con­sta­ble Dharambir took her to a city ho­tel on Thurs­day where he in­tox­i­cated her and forced un­nat­u­ral sex on her.

The woman fur­ther said that in the last six years, she com­plained to the ac­cused cop’s fam­ily about his be­hav­iour, but they too mis­be­haved with her and beat her up. She stated that the ac­cused had been threat­en­ing to kill her fam­ily mem­bers and up­load her pri­vate pic­tures on the in­ter­net if she in­formed the po­lice.

Based on her com­plaint, the po­lice have reg­is­tered a case against Dharambir un­der sec­tions of rape, crim­i­nal in­tim­i­da­tion and un­nat­u­ral sex. The po­lice have also booked four of Dharambir’s fam­ily mem­bers for as­sault­ing the com­plainant. A friend of Dharambir’s has also been booked for steal­ing the mo­bile phone of the com­plainant. Suresh Ku­mar, the SHO of city po­lice sta­tion said they have launched a probe and as­sured of an un­bi­ased in­ves­ti­ga­tion. He though said pre­vi­ous records showed the com­plainant woman had in 2014 ac­cused a Kar­nal man of rap­ing her on pre­text of mar­riage. The man ac­cused by the com­plainant was ac­quit­ted by the court nine months later.

“None­the­less, a fair probe will be car­ried out and the ac­cused will be made to join in­ves­ti­ga­tion,” said Ku­mar.
