DSP Gursharan Singh and his team had earlier arrested a Punjab Police ASI, his wife and son who were allegedly in possession of 212-gram ‘chitta’ and had registered a case against them under the NDPS Act.
While the ASI’s wife had been released bail, her husband and son were in jail. The woman requested Singh to get her husband and son out of jail but instead, he allegedly started blackmailing and sexually exploiting her.
The woman approached a senior police official seeking action against the DSP. As per the woman, DSP Gursharan Singh on Monday called her to a hotel located near Hanuman Chowk in the city. She also informed the police about the development. The Civil Lines police team laid a trap and arrested the DSP from the hotel.
Bathinda SSP Bhupinderjit Singh Virk said the accused was held from a hotel near Hanuman Chowk locality. He said a case has been registered under section 376 (rape by a police official) of the Indian Penal Code.
The SSP said the woman alleged that the accused had been sexually abusing her for quite some time.
