Indian Colonel Held for Raping Subordinate’s Daughter

An army colonel based at a training facility in Shimla was arrested for allegedly raping the daughter of a junior colleague, police said.
The 21-year-old woman’s father is a lieutenant colonel at the Army Training Command (ARTRAC).  The lieutenant colonel took his daughter to the Sadar Police station,  where he said that she had been raped. The woman was unconscious at that time.
Police took her to the Deen Dayal Upadhyay Regional Hospital, where she gained consciousness. She also accused the colonel of raping her.
“The woman said she used to talk to the colonel over phone and he invited her to his place a couple of days ago and raped her,” a police source said.
The police detained the colonel  but registered a case  on the basis of the woman’s allegations. The woman is an aspiring model and the police are investigating if she was lured on the pretext of an assignment.
