Woman alleges sexual exploitation by IFS officer.

A WOMAN has accused an IFS officer of sexual exploiting and torturing her for three years. The victim was the domestic help of the officer when he was posted in Nairobi as the deputy high commissioner of India in Kenya.

The 21- year- old woman from Jharkhand, now staying in Kotla Mubarakpur, filed a complaint at the Moti Nagar police station on Thursday evening. The police are yet to register an FIR. The woman also filed a complaint with the National Commission for Women ( NCW). A spokesperson of the ministry said: " The matter will be looked into with the seriousness it deserves." Sources in the ministry, however, say the officer is in India now and the police has to first take action.

The NCW has sought an action- taken report ( ATR) from the ministry and the Delhi Police. " Based on the ATR, the NCW shall initiate further action," NCW chairperson Girija Vyas said.

The woman was working in the house of the officer from 2007 until April this year. He had taken her with him to Nairobi.

" He threatened to kill me if I told anybody about the exploitation," she alleged in her complaint to the NCW. Although the officer had promised to deposit her salary in a bank after they returned to India, she alleged that it was not deposited.
