A probe has been ordered against a sub-inspector (SI) of police after a girl alleged that he raped her at a police station in Bihar's Khagaria district recently, police sources said on Wednesday.

Superintendent of Police (SP) Deepak Barnwal transferred the accused SI Satyendra Singh, to police lines and asked the sub-divisional police officer (SDPO) Rajiv Ranjan to probe the rape charge against Singh, the sources said.

The girl, a native of Marr village, had alleged in a complaint that she was raped by the Singh at Morkahi police station last week, where she had gone to record her statement under section 164 of the CrPC before a magistrate, in connection with her escapade with her boyfriend about which her family had lodged a case, they said.

Meanwhile, the Bihar State Women Commission Member Chandramukhi Devi said that she will go to Khagaria to probe the rape charge against the SI, the sources added.
