Constable held for rape, blackmail
Salem: A 24-year-old police constable, attached to the Kovaipudur police station in Coimbatore district, was arrested on Friday for repeatedly raping his former college mate, now a married woman, from Mettur in Salem district, and for filming the act and uploading it on the Internet.
The accused, S. Sathish from Malayampalayam, Salem district, had recently joined the police force as a constable and was working in Coimbatore district. During his college days, Satish had a relationship with the 25-year-old woman, and had been intimate with her during their late teens.

“Recently, the constable went to the extent of exposing their relationship to the woman’s husband and uploaded the visuals on the Internet,” a police official said. The woman filed a complaint against the constable and he was arrested under several sections of the IPC, including rape.
