“After the younger sister had volunteered to look around for a locker room, the two accused convinced the victim to come with them to a second-floor waiting room in the VIP arena of the station, near the international tourist information office. They took her to room 201 and raped her there,” said a GRP official.
Cop suspended after test confirmed rape
“We arrested the RPSF constable on Wednesday morning after the medical test of the victim confirmed rape. Investigations are on,” said DCP (crime and railways) Sanjay Jain.
Sources said there was some delay in the arrests because the victim’s statement initially appeared a bit contradictory.
Railway officials said that they have decided to take prompt action to send a stern message to the forces.
“We have come to know that there was also a financial dispute between the woman and the two men over a sum of Rs 7 lakh. However, until proven guilty, we have suspended the constable. We are in talks with RPF, RPSF and GRP on how to make the station complex safer,” said a Northern Railway spokesperson.
The police have arrested the constable Pintu Singh(24) and his friend Hawan Pratap Singh(21) on the charges of rape.
