The police on Monday arrested a constable of the Sindhudurg police for allegedly raping his girlfriend. Constable as Mangesh Jadhav (34), a resident of Sindhudurg, was arrested for raping and cheating.

The police said the victim, Sulekha Naik (32) (name changed to protect her identity) who resides in Powai, has known the accused for many years, but have been in a relationship since 2007.

Police said both the accused and the victim wanted to get married. "But because of a family problem, their plans could not materialise and they got married to their respective spouses," said Senior Police Inspector Jadhav.

The sources said Mangesh assured the victim of marriage, by divorcing his wife and maintaining a physical relationship with Naik. Every time the victim asked him about getting married, he gave excuses.

This led to friction between them. The victim then gave a written complaint against the accused in April.
