A Jharkhand cop has been suspended after he was caught trying to molest a woman constable on the pretext of sanctioning her leave. The incident occurred in Ranchi's Police Lines on Wednesday, January 6.
According to the woman constable, she had been seeking to get her leaves sanctioned for the past two days, India Today reported.
On Wednesday, the accused jemadar Shatrughan Singh called her to his room and attempted to molest her. Hearing her cries for help, other police officers rushed to the room and caught Singh.
In no time, Singh touched the woman constable's feet to apologise.
