Kishanganj, February 27, 2013
A Bihar woman constable has been arrested for sending vulgar SMSes and repeatedly calling an IAS probationer posted in Kishanganj on his official cell number, said police on Tuesday.

Jyoti Kumari, 24, posted as constable in Gaya, was taken into custody on Sunday evening when she along with three boys went to meet trainee IAS officer Kanwal Tanuj at his official residence. Tanuj is presently posted as SDO Kishanganj.

Kumari was later released on a bond after counseling.

Kishanganj SP, Manoj Kumar said, the woman, who is married and has a child, had been handed over to her mother.

"I have written to the police department for suitable action. No FIR has, however, been lodged in this case," he added.

According to reports, the SDO had lodged a complaint with the local police on Saturday evening.

Tanuj said he was mentally tortured by the constable for nearly two months.

"She was sending vulgar SMSes and harassing me by calling regularly on my official mobile phone," he said.

A police officer said the woman might have some "mental problem". "She had contacted some top officers in the district and had expressed her desire to meet the young SDO on Sunday evening," he added.

Another officer said the woman apparently had a habit of maintaining contacts with top administrative and police officers.

"Cellphone numbers of several IAS and IPS officers have been found in her mobile phone, which is a bit unusual," he added.
