A CON­STA­BLE at­tached to MIDC po­lice sta­tion was ar­rested on Satur­day for rap­ing a 20-year-old who was caught steal­ing choco­lates from D-Mart in Powai. The ac­cused, Mad­hukar Avhad, has been ar­rested by the Powai po­lice for rape.

The Powai po­lice said, on Fe­bru­ary 6, they re­ceived a call from the D-Mart staff in­form­ing them about a woman caught steal­ing 10 choco­lates from the store. Avhad, who was on duty at the time, vis­ited the mall and took a de­tailed note in writ­ing from the woman that she would not repeat the act. Avhad then took her Aad­haar card de­tails and phone num­ber.

The next day, Avhad called to the woman telling her he would re­turn her Aad­haar card and state­ment. He then took her to a ho­tel near Aarey Road say­ing he would re­turn it to her there. On reach­ing the ho­tel room, Avhad forced him­self on her and even took a selfie on her phone. Avhad then re­fused to re­turn her state­ment and Aad­haar card telling her to meet him again.

On Satur­day, the woman’s hus­band saw the selfie on her phone and reg­is­tered a case of rape against the con­sta­ble at Powai po­lice sta­tion.
