The Agra police have arrested a 30-year-old Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC) jawan for allegedly raping a 26-year-old woman whom he held captive at a marriage hall for two hours on Thursday evening. The accused, posted at the PAC battalion in Kanpur, was arrested Saturday morning.
In the first information report (FIR) lodged at the area police station on Friday, the victim said that the accused recorded the act on his mobile phone and hit her with his shoes when she tried to resist his bid.
The woman told the police that on Thursday evening, she was going home when the jawan, whom she knew, said that he would drop her off after clearing a pending bill at the marriage hall. She said she agreed and accompanied him on his bike to the hall. “Three more people were present there and one of them took me and the jawan to a room. A few minutes later, that man left, leaving me and the PAC man in the room. He pulled off my dupatta and when I resisted, he attacked me with shoes,” the woman said in the FIR.
“The accused has been arrested from near his parental village Saturday morning. The victim knew him as both stayed in the same village. The PAC battalion at Kanpur has been informed about the incident and the subsequent arrest while she was taken for a medical examination on Friday. The report is awaited,” Agra Deputy Commissioner of Police Sonam Kumar said.
The area police station in-charge said that the accused has been arrested under sections 376 (rape), 342 (wrongful confinement) and 352 (punishment for assault) of the Indian Penal Code and relevant sections of the IT Act.
