NEW DELHI: A 24-year-old Delhi Police woman constable, who attempted suicide on Tuesday, was allegedly raped by a senior officer after being promised marriage, police said on Wednesday.
The woman lodged a complaint against Sub-Inspector Vishesh Khokar at Khajoori Khas police station in east Delhi. Khokar is absconding.
The woman constable befriended Khokar during the 2010 Commonwealth Games. Since then, she was staying with Khokar as a live-in partner in a rented accommodation.
For the past few months, Khokar started avoiding her and told her that he would not marry her.
On Tuesday afternoon, the woman was found in an unconscious state at a bus station near her house after she consumed poison. She was admitted to a hospital where her statement was recorded, a police officer said.
“A team has been formed and a hunt is on to nab Khokar,” the police officer told IANS.
