A constable, who allegedly exploited a woman sexually for about a year on the pretext of marrying her, entered into a wedlock with her on Wednesday following intervention of the police. The marriage was performed at Arya Samaj Mandir, Morar, Gwalior.

According to the police, constable Rupendra Singh Rajawat is a native of Dongarpura village in Bhind, whereas his family lives in Gwalior. Sources said that the woman's first marriage took place in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. After two months of marriage, they got separated. Rani returned to his native village in Bhind.

Later, Rani started working at a saree shop. She came in contact with the constable and began to live with him. They decided to marry, but Rupendra's kin fixed his marriage with some other girl at Asendhi village in Etawah, Uttar Pradesh. The date of marriage was fixed for November 28, 2014.

When the woman came to know about it, she exerted pressure on Rupendra to marry her but Rupendra refused. He even threatened to kill her entire family. The victim, along with her father Khushi Lal, called on superintendent of police (SP) Vineet Khanna on October 11. The SP asked Rupendra Singh to marry her.
