Jaiveer Singh, who was posted at the Punjabi Bagh police station, allegedly raped a 23-year-old woman at gunpoint at his friend’s house. He was arrested after the victim and her employer complained to the police.
Singh was investigating officer on a case of assault in which the woman’s businessman employer was an accused. Police were told the cop Singh began visiting the man’s house on the pretext of investigations and extorted Rs.50,000 from him.
Police say the CCTV footage that nailed Singh shows him brandishing a pistol and forcing the woman to disrobe. She said the man had misbehaved with her earlier but she ignored it.
The businessman said Singh went over and asked for a drink, and once drunk he asked for help to get to his car. The maid was told to help him but later Sigh’s car was still at the house but neither Singh nor the maid were around so he went to check her room and found the two inside in a compromising position. He then called the police who caught Singh and also seized a toy pistol.
