Sacked BSF personnel held for subjecting wife to cruelty

New Delhi, Jan 19 (IANS) A sacked Border Security Force (BSF) Head Constable has been arrested here for criminal breach of trust and cruelty towards his wife, the Delhi Police said on Thursday.

The police said the former head constable of the BSF, Rahul Arora, carried a reward of Rs 50,000 on his head in a case of criminal breach of trust and cruelty towards his wife.

A resident of Rajpur Khurd village here, Arora, 36, joined the BSF as a Head Constable in 1998.

“Rahul was announced a proclaimed offender by a local court. He had deserted his wife and a two-year-old son in 2010,” Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ravindra Yadav said.

He was found to be in a live-in relationship with another woman when the police apprehended him on January 14 after raiding his hideout at Chattarpur area in south Delhi, the police officer said.

He met his live-in partner in 2013. He was dismissed from the BSF in 2009 as he absconded without informing the force, te police said.

“He was having a troubled marriage with his wife. After deserting his wife and son, he went to Dehradun where he hid for almost two years,” Yadav said.

As he did not come back, his wife filed a case against him and the in-laws.

Rahul did not bother to join the investigation despite several summons sent to his family. Later, he was declared proclaimed offender on June 2016, DCP Yadav said.
