JAIPUR: A senior official of a public sector undertaking has been arrested in Jaipur for allegedly raping a woman colleague, police said on Wednesday.

The woman had lodged a case against Manmit Singh Bhullar (45) -- general manager with the Food Corporation of India (FCI) -- at the Bajaj Nagar police station on June 1, said Additional Superintendent of Police Mool Singh Rana.

According to the woman, Bhullar harassed her and was pressurising her to have physical relations with him.
