Assistant sub-inspector Prem Thatal stationed at Nawamidanda Police Post in Panchthar was arrested today on the charge of raping and impregnating a 14-year-old girl.

A team from District Police Office, Panchthar, arrested ASI Thatal after it came to light that he had raped and impregnated a teenage girl. The victim’s father claimed that the ASI had raped his daughter the first time three months ago and given her
Rs 500. After that, he raped her repeatedly, he claimed.

When the victim’s mother called the ASI at home and inquired about the incident, ASI handed a Rs 1000 note and said that he would take the girl to the headquarters for treatment.

According to the victim’s father, ASI brought him and the victim girl to the Bus Park on his motorbike and kept them at a hotel in Phidim on Monday night.

Thatal had reached the district hospital with the victim’s father and the girl for abortion at 10:00am today. Deputy Superintendent of Police Bamdev Gautam said the District Police Office had learnt about the ASI’s crime from the villagers.

“Plainclothes policemen took the ASI under control before victim girl was taken to the abortion room,” DSP Gautam said. The ASI is in police detention while girl is kept under doctors’ observation. DSP Gautam pledged to punish the guilty ASI.
