An Assistant Sub-Inspector here has been arrested and sent to judicial custody for allegedly raping his friend’s maid at gunpoint in Northwest Delhi’s Rani Bagh area, police said on Saturday.
ASI Javeer Singh who was posted at Punjabi Bagh police station in West Delhi, went to his friend’s place on Thursday night and allegedly raped his maid (23), under the influence of alcohol. A CCTV footage has also surfaced which shows Singh was carrying a gun. It is alleged that the rape was committed at gunpoint.
The victim had approached police yesterday and an FIR was registered following which the ASI was arrested. The cop was yesterday produced before a court, which remanded him to 14-day judicial custody. The medical examination of the girl confirmed rape.
Commissioner of Delhi Police B S Bassi said they were examining his dismissal under Article 311(2)(B) (of Constitution). He said police will work to ensure that a chargesheet is filed at the earliest and the accused is convicted. “As far as departmental thing is concerned, we are not going to wait for the departmental enquiry. He will be dismissed under Article 311 (2) B where a person is dismissed straightaway,” Bassi said.
He asserted that any police official indulging in transgression of law will not be spared. “He will not be spared and we need not be told (this) by anybody. This is our determination… we are determined to take strictest possible action against any police officer who indulges in transgression of law,” he said.
“Particularly, anybody who indulges in violence or criminal act against woman shall not be spared. Strictest possible action will be taken in this case. As you know, report was lodged with police and he was arrested,” the Delhi Police Commissioner said.
