The police official, identified as sub-inspector Ram Pal, was taken in custody in Jind after passengers on the bus caught and beat him up.

The passengers forced the driver to take the bus to the police station in Jind, 210 km from Chandigarh, where Ram Pal was handed over to the authorities.

The police official will be presented before a local court in Jind on Sunday.

The victim had boarded the bus at Jind going to Karnal on Saturday evening with her mother and another younger sibling.

"I was holding the younger child and the man in police uniform offered to take my daughter in his lap. A couple sitting close to them later saw that he was trying to do wrong things with my daughter. My daughter was also crying and wanted to come to me. The man confronted the police official and other passengers joined in. The police official was taken to the police station," the victim's mother said.
