Jind (Haryana), Jul 6: A case was filed today against an assistant sub-inspector of Haryana police for allegedly raping a 40-year-old woman, for the last seven years on the pretext of marriage, a senior police official said.

The woman, a divorcee and a resident of Raghu colony area here, also alleged that ASI Balraj had duped her to the tune of Rs four lakh on the pretext of purchasing a plot in her name. Rohtak Road police station SHO, Mahendra Singh told reporters that police have started the investigation against the ASI and further action will be taken after the completion of the same.

The woman said that seven years back she got divorced from her husband due to personal feuds and after that she was staying with her daughter alone, Singh said. The accused, a friend of her husband, started visiting her frequently and raped her on several occasions in the last seven years. Further probes into the case are on, the SHO added.

However, it is unclear as to why the woman kept quiet for such a long time.
