A case of rape was registered against a senior Indian Foreign Service (IFS) officer after his 30-year-old private secretary accused him of the crime. However, the police later quashed the FIR after the medical examination of the victim ruled out rape.

“The complainant had approached us on December 2, and we registered a case. However, we are quashing the FIR as her medical examination does not corroborate her claim,” said a senior police officer.

According to police, the complainant had accused her boss — who has recently joined the ICCR from his earlier posting at the Ministry of External Affairs — of raping her during a party to celebrate his new posting. She said the accused raped her after giving her sweets laced with sedatives on November 2.

The accused is a 1991-batch, director-level officer, while the victim hails from Jharkhand.
