According to the police, a Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC) policeman assigned to Kanpur has been detained for allegedly raping a lady in his hometown of Agra.
The lady, who turned 23 on November 5, was headed to a neighboring marriage house to pay some outstanding debts when Yogesh Kumar, the officer, persuaded her to go along on his motorbike.
The victim said that on Thursday, after being dragged by force into a room, she was raped and severely mistreated.
Outside the room was Pushpendra, the marriage home’s caregiver.
In response to the woman’s accusation, the police filed a formal report (FIR) against the constable and the caregiver, alleging offenses under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 376 (rape), 323 (voluntarily inflicting pain), and 506 (criminal intimidation).
The victim went on to say that the policeman had made a lewd video of her and threatened to post it online.
“He also threatened to harm my family if I reported the incident,” the woman said. I eventually got him to drop me off close to my home after I begged him to let me leave.
“The woman underwent a medical examination and recorded her statement before the magistrate under CrPC Section 164,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police Sonam Kumar. As directed by the court, the accused policeman has been taken into custody.
The lady is the youngest of three siblings and comes from a financially disadvantaged household, according to the locals. A laborer named her father died in the Covid-19 epidemic. She works at a mobile phone store and now lives with her mother and siblings.
