Even after five days of registering a rape case against an assistant sub-inspector posted here, police have failed to arrest him. The victim, on the other hand, is accusing police of protecting the cop and delaying her medical examination.

On the complaint of a 27-year-old woman of Sector 68, police had booked ASI Balbir Singh, posted at Phase 8 police station, for rape and sexually exploiting the victim for the past over a year. However, now the victim has alleged police of deliberately not arresting him and delaying her medical examination.

In the complaint, the victim said she was first raped by the accused in August 2014 when he came to her house in connection to a police complaint filed by her against her husband and in-laws. She alleged that when she was first raped by the accused, he had put some intoxicant in her tea, following which she fell unconscious and when gained senses, she realised she was raped.

She also alleged that the ASI, who had clicked her obscene pictures, used to blackmail her.

Despite lodging police complaint on August 18, police delayed the FIR registration and did not even get her medical examination till September 5.

"The investigation is on but no arrest has been made so far. The cop has not reported to duty ever since the incident has happened. Though no departmental action has been taken yet, we are waiting for the medical examination report, and a suitable action will be taken after that,"said Harpal Singh, superintendent of police, headquarters.
