Jaipur: A constable was placed under
suspension today after he was accused of raping a woman from
Borana village, police said.

Ajit, the accused constable posted at Chechat police
station, had allegedly raped the woman on Thursday.

"The victim said that she was on her way to Kota in a
passenger jeep when Ajit met her near Modak when the jeep
stopped at a stand," Circle Officer Praveen Jain said.
Since she was familier with him, she accepted her offer to
halt there for some time, Jain said, adding "the constable
then took her to some isolated area and raped her."

He said in order to conduct a fair probe, the constable
was suspended today.
