Sexual abuse plaint against cop: Inquiry still pending

‘VICTIMS GETTING THREAT CALLS’


Mumbai: Assistant commissioner of police Milind Bhise, currently probing allegations made by two Kurla men against a police inspector about the latter sexually exploiting them, is yet to complete his inquiry. The probe ordered on October 23, was supposed to be completed within 10 days.
 
    On October 23, the two men, aged 24 and 25, approached Qauiser Khalid, additional commissioner of police, alleging that an inspector from Chunabhatti police station, had forced them to come to his cabin , where he allegedly dressed up like a woman and had unnatural sex with them. Khalid had instituted a probe into the matter.

    “When we resisted the
first time, he threatened to frame us in false cases,” one of the complainants had told Khalid. The additional commissioner told this correspondent that he had asked the ACP to speed up the inquiry and submit the report at the earliest. 

    Salim Qureishi, a social worker, who took the duo to Khalid told TOI cops had harassed him for taking action. “They are making threatening calls to the two men on their cell phones. One of the victims received a call from a constable who asked him to come and meet the senior police inspector. If this continues, the victims may themselves withdraw their complaints fearing police action against them,” said Qureishi. TOI’s attempts to contact Bhise have gone in vain. — Mateen Hafeez
