The policemen threatened to send the fiance to jail, if they were not paid Rs 10,000.
Despite the couple pleaded with the cops, they forced the fiancé to play them ₹ 1,000 through PayTM.
The unidentified man demanded ₹ 5.5 lakh for them to escape ‘dire consequences’.
Alongside holding them captive for three hours, the woman alleged, the policemen slapped her and officer Rakesh Kumar forced himself upon her.
The accused allegedly went on to harass the woman even after releasing them, by calling her up repeatedly and even showing up at her home.
