policeman was Tuesday caught on video raping a woman in a slum area in
Jabalpur district of Madhya Pradesh. The police, who were earlier refusing
to entertain a rape complaint against the policeman, were forced to
register an FIR when shown the video clip taken on a mobile camera.
Singh, an inspector posted in Seoni district, had come to Jabalpur to
visit a court. Later, he went to a slum area and entered a hut. When he
forced himself on a woman, she cried and people gathered there. The
inspector was literally caught on camera with his pants down. Police first
refused to accept her complaint.
But soon a person came with the
video clip and the police had to register a FIR against the inspector. "It
is a serious issue and we are acting on it. He (Pradeep Singh) has been
arrested and may be dismissed from service," said Inspector General of
Police V Madhukumar.
