Raj Kumar, who was part of a patrolling party, attempted to rape a mentally-disturbed woman under the influence of liquor in Dayalachak area of the district late last night, sub-divisional police officer (SDPO) Mohan Lal said.
The attempt, however, was foiled by the locals, the SDPO said. "The SPO was disengaged from services and arrested immediately", Lal said, adding that a case has been registered against him. Moreover, Havaldar Sardari Lal, who was the head of the patrolling party, was suspended for lack of supervision, the SDPO said. "Department inquiry has also been initiated against him", he said.
