Purnea: A woman assistant sub-inspector (ASI) was suspended on Thursday for allegedly demanding and taking a bribe from a rape survivor in Bihar’s Purnea.

ASI Annu Kumari, posted at Sadar police station, was suspended after prima facie she was found guilty of taking a bribe of Rs.10,000 from a Nepalese woman to initiate a probe into the allegations of rape against a man.

District superintendent of police (SP) Upendranath Verma said that Kumari was suspended based on the probe report submitted by the sub-divisional police officer (SDPO), adding that further investigation is underway.

The woman, a resident of Morang district in Nepal, in a video clip which has been circulating on social media for the past week, alleged that the woman ASI in Purnea took Rs.10,000 bribe from her to initiate a probe into the rape allegations.

She alleged that she approached the police, and even here, a woman police officer demanded a bribe, which she paid to her.
