In her complaint, the victim alleged that on November 13, she was sitting in the waiting room of the Amritsar Railway Station when Singh, who was in his uniform, approached her at 10.30pm and offered to help her get a hotel room.
Singh allegedly returned in mufti and took her to a hotel, where he bolted the room from inside, threatened her children with dire consequences, took her to the washroom and raped her thrice.
ASI Vijay Kumar, the police officer in charge of the Shivala Bhaiyan Police Station, said the matter was being duly investigated.
Not safe for tourists?
A couple of months ago a Danish woman, visiting Amritsar for her research, was molested near the railway station by a rickshaw puller who was later arrested.
Two days later, some visitors from Uttarakhand were beaten up when they were returning from the Golden Temple. Three persons including a woman were injured, the woman requiring an eye operation later.
