District superintendent of police (SP) Upendranath Verma said that Kumari was suspended based on the probe report submitted by the sub-divisional police officer (SDPO), adding that further investigation is underway.

The woman, a resident of Morang district in Nepal, in a video clip which has been circulating on social media for the past week, alleged that the woman ASI in Purnea took Rs.10,000 bribe from her to initiate a probe into the rape allegations.

In the video, she alleged that one Shambhu Yadav from Purnea, with whom she came in contact with on social media, raped her on several occasions for over a year on the pretext of marriage.

She alleged that she approached the police, and even here, a woman police officer demanded a bribe, which she paid to her.

Taking cognisance of the video, Purnea SP directed the SDPO to probe the allegations, and after the investigation found the ASI guilty, she was suspended.
