A 22-year-old woman from Greater Noida in Uttar Pradesh claims that on September 16 in Ghaziabad, three police officers assaulted her and also demanded money.
The woman and her Bulandshahr-based fiancé were in the Sai Upvan forest in Ghaziabad when two police officers approached them. Their names were Rakesh Kumar and Digambar Kumar, and another guy in uniform who has not yet been identified.
The officers demanded Rs 10,000 from the couple and threatened to put the fiance in jail. The couple begged the police to stop and reportedly even fell at their feet, but they didn't budge. The fiancé was then made to make a Rs 1,000 payment on the spot through an online transfer, reported NDTV.
The woman claimed that the unnamed individual also threatened the couple with horrible repercussions if they did not pay 5.5 lakh.
The woman accused Rakesh Kumar of forcing himself on her and the officers of hitting her in her formal complaint. Before being released, the two of them apparently endured a nearly three-hour captivity.
After that, the accused repeatedly called the victim and even went to her house to harass her. On September 19, Rakesh Kumar contacted the woman to harass her, but she taped their conversation to use as proof later. Rakesh Kumar unexpectedly showed up at the woman's residence and threatened her after learning that the couple had agreed to file an FIR against the three guys.
After being harassed and traumatised for ten days, the couple eventually filed an FIR on September 28.
Senior Ghaziabad police officer Nimish Patil stated that a comprehensive inquiry has been undertaken to locate the three offenders, who are all on the loose.
