In a shocking incident, a police constable allegedly raped a six-year-old girl in front of her younger brother on Wednesday evening.
The police constable has been arrested, as per details available.
As per the details available with The Times of India, the cop lured the girl with Rs 10 and took her to his house when she was playing and raped her there.
Police station in-charge Akhilesh Pradhan said Constable Subhash was in an inebriated state when he allegedly committed the crime. He assaulted the girl for around 30 minutes. He fled from the spot as people started to assemble outside his home after they heard the girl screaming.
When the accused returned to his rented accommodation on Thursday morning, a neighbour spotted him and raised the alarm.
The family members of the victim and local residents beat up the constable and handed him over to police.
Subhash is currently on deputation with the sales tax department.
Pradhan said the girl’s family hails from Bihar and the constable was living in their neighbourhood.
The matter is being investigated and a case has been lodged by the victim’s parents, the officer said.
