A police constable has been taken into police custody and sent to prison for rape of a married woman. According to the victim, the head constable Yashwant Rathore, aged 57, had come to her house to address a complaint of domestic violence when he allegedly carried out the horrific crime.

The accused, Yashwant Rathore and a home guard arrived at the woman's house on the night of June 19 after she approached the cops alleging that she was being thrashed and mistreated by her husband, who had married again and was staying with second wife.

As stated by Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Santosh Kumar stated, "The head constable went to the victim's house at 11 p.m. in the night after a domestic dispute complaint. He spent an hour with the victim on the first floor of the house. The victim recorded the conversation she had with the head constable. The rape survivor handed over the recording to police. In it, the constable is purportedly heard making obscene remarks."

In another shocking incident reported from Madhya Pradesh’s Bhopal, a 45-year-old man was taken into police custody for raping a 19-year-old girl for over three years on Monday.

The teenage victim was underage when she was first raped by her father approximately three years ago, police said.

On Monday, the accused sexually assaulted the girl again, while threatening to throw her mother and younger brother out of the house if she told about the incident to anyone. Tired of all the harassment, the victim, however, spoke with her mother and the two later went to the Aishbagh police station and filed a rape complaint.

The accused father has been booked under POCSO Act and other relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and sent to judicial custody.
