An Army officer has been arrested on charges of repeatedly raping a woman officer of the same rank after falsely entering into a wedlock here.

Uttarakhand Police arrested the Lt Colonel rank officer last night from Jhunjhunu area and he was being brought here, police sources said.

The woman officer, having the same Lt Colonel rank, has alleged in her complaint that the officer entered into a wedlock with her but later did not accept her as his wife.

In the FIR she alleged the officer raped her during the past few months in a military hospital.

The woman also alleged that the officer was already married and did not tell his marital status to her.
