BSF Constable Nabbed

Odisha Police has arrested a BSF constable from West Bengal on the charge of trafficking a woman from Malkangiri on the promise of marriage and abandoning her at Sonepat in Haryana.


A Odisha Police team with the help of its West Bengal counterpart arrested the constable from 43 BN BSF Rosan Bagh, Murshidabad on 25 January.
He was produced before the Court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate of Lalbagh, Murshidabad the next day and with its permission was taken on four days' transit remand to Malkangiri on 28 January, the State Police said.

The Odisha Police has registered a case of trafficking against the BSF constable, who hails from Rohat village in Sonepat district of Haryana, they said.

The constable had come in contact with the woman, who is from Chitrakonda area, when he was posted at MV 79 under Kalimela police station of Malkangiri district in 2012. In September next year he took the woman with him to Sonepat and kept her in a rented house there, Police said.

The BSF constable allegedly had physical relation with the woman, who delivered a girl child in 2014. After the birth of the baby, the constable allegedly severed all connections with the woman, who stayed on in Sonepat for six months waiting for him.


As he did not return or keep contact, the woman returned to her paternal home at Chitrakonda and had complained to the Chitrakonda police station on February 27, 2017.

Chitrakonda Police registered a case and began investigation based on her complaint.
"During investigation, it was ascertained that the accused trafficked the victim to Sonepat, Haryana, for the purpose of sexual exploitation of the victim and cohabited with her after deceitfully inducing a false belief of marriage," the police said.

After ascertaining the present place of posting of the accused constable, a four-member police team was sent to Murshidabad to arrest the accused, who was found to have already married in 2006.
