New Delhi: An assistant commissioner of police has been booked for allegedly raping a woman and molesting her minor daughter, police said today.

The woman had filed a complaint against the officer, Ramesh Dahiya, in July and alleged that she came in contact with him after the death of her husband, who was a criminal, they said.

The woman again filed a complaint on September 18 accusing the officer of raping her, molesting her minor daughter and kidnapping her son, the police said.

An FIR was registered on Wednesday and the case transferred to the Crime Branch since it was a sensitive matter and required thorough investigation, they said.

"We received a complaint on Tuesday and a case was registered under the appropriate sections of the Indian Penal Code the next day. The case has been transferred to the Crime Branch," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Nupur Prasad.
