A 21-year-old woman was allegedly raped by a constable on patrolling duty under Chhattisgarh Vidhan Sabha police station in Raipur.

The constables, identified as Hiralal Nirmalkar and Tikaram, were suspended by Raipur police on Monday and were charged under sections of rape and extortion.

The incident took place on December 7. The woman lodged a complaint on Sunday alleging that she was standing with her friend when the two constables, posted in the PCR-8 van, came on a motorcycle and caught them.

They recorded a video with their mobile phones and later Hiralal raped her. They also took Rs 5,000 for releasing them, the complaint said.

A departmental inquiry has been initiated, police said.
