Mumbai Police officer files rape case against man

·1-min read

Mumbai, Jun 13 (PTI) A woman police officer in Mumbai has lodged an FIR against a man claiming to be a banking professional for allegedly raping her under the pretext of marriage, an official said on Sunday.

In the FIR filed with the Powai police in the city on Friday, the victim, an Assistant Police Inspector (API), also named two more persons for threatening and blackmailing her in connection with the crime.

'The main accused hails from Aurangabad and claims to be a banking professional. He came in contact with the woman police officer through a social networking site and eventually they entered into a relationship. The accused allegedly captured his intimate videos with the victim and later started harassing and blackmailing her,' the official said quoting the FIR.

The accused and his two colleagues kept blackmailing the victim by threatening to release her videos on social media, he said.

Fed up with the harassment, the woman approached the Powai police on Friday, he said.

A case of rape and cheating was registered under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) but police are yet to make an arrest. Further investigation is underway. PTI ZA NSK NSK
