IANS reported that the police, who were earlier refusing to entertain a rape complaint against the policeman, were forced to register an FIR when shown the video clip taken on a mobile camera.
The inspector, identified as Pradeep Singh was posted in Seoni district, but had come to Jabalpur to visit a court. Later, he went to a slum area and entered a hut.
When he forced himself on a woman, she cried and people gathered there. The inspector was literally caught on camera with his pants down.
Police first refused to accept her complaint.
But soon a person came with the video clip and the police had to register a FIR against the inspector.
“It is a serious issue and we are acting on it. He (Pradeep Singh) has been arrested and may be dismissed from service,” said Inspector General of Police V Madhukumar.
