Punjab Police DSP accused of forcing Ludhiana woman into drug addiction, raping her; suspended

The Hush Post: A Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) of the Punjab Police has been accused of pushing a woman from Ludhiana into drug addiction and raping her, and, thus, has been suspended on these charges.

The DSP was suspended by the state government after the 26-year-old woman from Ludhiana levelled the allegations against DSP Daljit Singh Dhillon, at a press conference held in Jalandhar on Thursday, Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh asked the Director General of Punjab Police (DGP) Suresh Arora to hold an inquiry and take stern action against the DSP, if found guilty, a report said.

Accused DSP Daljit Singh Dhillon, was posted as DSP (headquarters) at Ferozepur.

The victim woman from Ludhiana had alleged that she first met DSP Dhillon at his residence in 2013. She alleged that the officer served lunch to her and then placed heroin before her and said it was a fad among young women to sniff it. “He taught me the method of its consumption. He also gave me some quantity of the contraband. He told me that he had some drug recovered in raids and asked me to offer it to young unmarried women,” the woman was quoted as saying in the report.

The victim again went to Dhillon’s residence after some days. The woman alleged that Dhillon took her to a room upstairs.  “Where he gave me the drug and then raped me,” the woman was quoted saying.

The woman reportedly said she slowly became addicted to heroin but now she has recovered and is living a drug-free life, the report said.
