Jharkhand: Rape accused CRPF Jawan rejects victim's marriage proposal, arrested

Ranchi: A 23-year-old CRPF jawan, who allegedly raped a girl from his home town last year, has turned down her marriage proposal in exchange of withdrawal of case and has instead opted to go to jail, police said.

The accused, Jadunath Murmu, posted with 228th CRPF battalion in Chhattisgarh, sexually assaulted a girl from his village on the pretext of marriage in Dumaria block.

In October last year, the girl lodged a FIR at Dumaria police station where she accused Murmu of raping her on marriage promises.

When girl's family got to know about the incident, they tried convincing Murmu to marry their daughter, but he reportedly turned down the offer.

"Murmu was arrested from the Sukna CRPF camp in Chhattisgarh on March 26", Dumuria police station in-charge Bikrant Kumar told Hindustan Times.

As per the reports, the police took action only after the victim threatened to immolate herself.

Speaking to HT, Mosaboni deputy superintendent of police Ajit Kumar Bimal said, "The arrest in the matter should have been immediate. However, a departmental inquiry will be done against the Mosabani police station for delaying action in the case.
