New Delhi: A vigilance report has confirmed that an area police station chief had tried to bribe the family of a five-year-old rape victim with Rs.2,000 to hush up the incident, a police source said.

The vigilance report given to Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar Saturday hinted at several alleged lapses on the part of Gandhi Nagar police station chief Dharampal Singh, the source told IANS. The father of the raped child had last week alleged that the station house officer (SHO) of Gandhi Nagar in east Delhi had offered him Rs.2,000 for not registering a first information report.

"The action against the SHO will be decided after a departmental inquiry, which has begun," said Deputy commissioner of Police Prabhakar. While the raped child was under treatment at east Delhi's Swami Dayanand Hospital April 17, the SHO, not in his uniform, offered Rs.2,000 to her family, the source said, citing the vigilance report.

The SHO was accompanied by a constable at the time when he offered the money to the girl's father, the source said.
