JAMMU: Three CRPF personnel have been suspended for allegedly molesting a girl and circulating videos here.
“On March 10, at 2200 hrs, a girl, along with two CRPF personnel, was found inside GC CRPF Bantalab Campus which prima facie seemed to be a case of security breach,” a CRPF spokesperson said here on Sunday.
He said accordingly the matter was informed to Civil Police who also examined the lady and CRPF personnel as molestation was alleged, adding, “The two CRPF personnel were suspended nevertheless as it was found to be a lapse in security prima facie.”
“The video of the episode was circulated on social media after which the woman lodged complaint at Domana police station alleging outraging her modesty by CRPF personnel,” he said.
The spokesperson added that the CRPF personnel who circulated the video in media have been suspended by superior authorities.
