An Assistant sub-inspector is likely to be dismissed by the Delhi Police for allegedly raping his friend's domestic help at gunpoint city's Rani Bagh area.

"He has been arrested and is now in judicial custody. We are also examining his dismissal under Article 311(2)(B) (of Constitution)," commissioner of Delhi Police BS Bassi said on Saturday.

"We will ensure that chargesheet is filed at the earliest and he is convicted. As far as departmental thing is concerned, we are not going to wait for the departmental enquiry. He will be dismissed under Article 311 (2) B where a person is dismissed straightaway," he said.

Bassi asserted that any police official indulging in transgression of law will not be spared.

"He will not be spared and we need not be told (this) by anybody. This is our determination... we are determined to take strictest possible action against any police officer who indulges in transgression of law," he said. "Particularly, anybody who indulges in violence or criminal act against woman shall not be spared.

Strictest possible action will be taken in this case. As you know, report was lodged with police and he was arrested," Bassi added.

Assistant sub-inspector Jaiveer Singh, posted at Punjabi Bagh police station, went to his friend's place on Thursday night and allegedly raped his maid (23), under the influence of alcohol.

A CCTV footage has also surfaced which shows the cop carrying a gun. It is alleged that the rape was committed at gunpoint. The victim had approached police on Friday following which the ASI was arrested.

The girl was sent for medical examination which confirmed rape. An FIR was registered against the accused at Ranibag police station. The cop was arrested and produced before a court, which remanded him to 14-day judicial custody.
