Bhubaneswar: Three persons including a Constable of Odisha Armed Police Force (OAPF) have been arrested for attempting to abduct a woman and misbehaving with her inside an auto-rickshaw in the state capital today.
According to sources, the victim, a resident of Shantipalli Basti here, was going to the police station to file a complaint about domestic violence. Meanwhile, the on-duty Constable posted at Khandagiri police station travelling in an auto-rickshaw assured her to help her file the police complaint and asked her to come inside the vehicle to take her to police station.
Instead of taking her to the police station, the on-duty Constable, who reportedly was in an inebriated condition, along with two other occupants outraged her modesty.
However, the woman jumped out of the vehicle near Saheed Nagar police station.
A case was registered against the three accused persons and were arrested under relevant Sections of the IPC, sources added.
