Senior lawyer held for rape of client

A 62-year-old senior advocate practicing in Tis Hazari courts was arrested for raping his client repeatedly for two years in northwest Delhi. The accused has been identified as Bhupender Singh. He allegedly raped the 33-year-old woman as punishment for a cheque issued by her that bounced, said cops. Singh, a resident of Rani Bagh area, was arrested after the 33-year-old victim claimed that Singh had recently started troubling her again after she got married in January this year.

The victim had employed Singh in a dowry case she had filed against her previous husband seven years ago. Cops said she approached them on May 10 with a complaint, stating that Singh had, apart from threatening her with dire consequences, raped her throughout her association with him between 2004 and 2006.
