Puri: A Police constable currently posted at Nimapada Police station was arrested by Satyabadi Police on Thursday on charges of rape and blackmailing.
The accused, Gangadhar Raut, had allegedly got in touch with a woman when he was posted at Satyabadi Police station. The survivor has accused Raut of forcing her to maintain physical relations with him in exchange of providing help. Raut also blackmailed her and continued to rape her repeatedly.
Finding no respite from her situation, the survivor approached the Puri Superintendent of Police (SP) with her grievances, who then directed the Satyabadi Police to arrest and prosecute the accused constable.
