Delhi Po­lice ar­rested a CISF head con­sta­ble for al­legedly ‘mis­us­ing’ a Union home min­istry sticker that was found on a car in which a 20-year-old woman was al­legedly raped by a driver in Moti Bagh on Wed­nes­day.

Po­lice said when in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the rape case was on, an agri­cul­ture min­istry of­fi­cial sent a com­plaint, ac­cus­ing CISF head con­sta­ble Omkar Singh of mis­us­ing the sticker en­trusted to him by the min­istry.

Singh had re­port­edly passed on the sticker to his son, Mo­hit Pawar — the owner of the car in which the woman was al­legedly raped. Pawar used the sticker to avoid pay­ing toll and for free park­ing.

Sources said Pawar had black­ened the va­lid­ity date on the sticker and il­le­gally used his car as a cab.

Since the car had an MHA sticker on the wind­shield, it was not stopped at bar­ri­cades or flagged down by traf­fic po­lice.

The CISF ini­ti­ated a de­part­men­tal probe against Singh and said ac­tion would be taken against him. He is posted at the mo­tor trans­port depart­ment of the force.

Mean­while, the ar­rested driver, Avneesh aka Aman, has been sent to ju­di­cial cus­tody.
