According to officials, one of the arrested constables has confessed to the investigators that he had raped the woman at a private house in Shadman area the other day.
The woman (N) told the police that she had visited the Services Hospital to get the death certificate of her brother who died due to dengue fever when the on-duty doctors called in the police. The doctors handed her over to the policemen on the suspicion of a mobile phone theft.
