Mumbai: The wife of an additional DGP , now posted in Delhi, has accused her former business partner of coaxing her to sleep with government officials. An FIR of molestation was registered at the Bandra-Kurla Complex police station and later transferred to the crime branch.
The woman, an entrepreneur, in her complaint stated she and the accused planned to start a company , but the accused later asked her to sleep with senior government officials to get work done and would look at her weirdly , said a police officer. The accused, who has investments in several businesses, earlier floated a `farmers-to-consumers' scheme for buying and selling vegetables and fruits. “The complainant and the accused had planned to float a new business. She said in her complaint that she had chalked out the plans and came up with a new concept for the firm. The duo signed a memorandum of understanding, but the plan was not executed even after six months. However, the accused floated a firm in Jaipur using the same concept,“ said an officer. The businessman is also accused of passing comments at the complainant.
Looking at the gravity of the case, the investigation was handed over to the Crime Against Women (CAW) cell of the crime branch. “We have issued a notice to the accused to appear before the investigating officer,“ said the source. The CAW cell mainly comprises women cops and sensitive cases are transferred to this branch. “Our probe is at a crucial stage and we can't reveal much about it. We have summoned the businessman for his statement. An official of the rank of ACP is supervising the probe,“ added the source.
