In a shocking case, a woman Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) with Delhi Police was allegedly molested and physically assaulted by a Head Constable. And that’s not all; the incident occurred in February but she has not been able to get the FIR registered.
The incident occurred within the premises of the police station in a posh south Delhi location, Lodhi Colony, reports NDTV.
The accused allegedly tore off the victim’s clothes during the attack. He also dragged her down the stairs and hit her on the head with a pot. The ASI informed her seniors several times and gave written complaints on many occasions but no FIR was lodged.
The victim is posted with Narayana police station while the accused, Head Constable Narender, is posted with Malviya Nagar police station. Both stay at the quarters in Lodhi Colony police station. A senior police officer on the condition of anonymity said that some cops are sheltering Narender.
“The incident took place on February 28. The victim was having tea with her husband Mahender Dhyani when Narender called her outside making obscene gestures. As the victim stepped out of her house she was attacked by the head constable. Narender slapped her on the chest and tore off her clothes. She tried to escape, shouting for help, but Narender dragged her down the stairs, causing her severe injuries.
“Her husband and some neighbours rushed to her rescue. A PCR call was made and a Sub-Inspector (SI) was sent to the scene to look into the matter. She was rushed to AIIMS and was discharged after treatment. She then lodged a written complaint with the Lodhi Colony police station. Station House Officer (SHO) Rajender Singh is aware of the incident but despite having known all the facts he did not loge an FIR,” said a police source.
When contacted, she only said no corrective action has been taken so far by the senior police officer.
Her husband Mahender Dhyani said they had also filed an RTI plea in this regard and came to know that senior police officials were provided wrong information by the investigating officer.
“In our RTI reply we were told that an FIR had been registered naming both persons (ASI and HC). But in fact no such case was made by police officers. SHO, Rajender Singh and the ACP are well aware of the case. The RTI has proved that senior police officers have ditched their junior and want to shelter the accused,” alleged Mahender.
The victim has now approached the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to get justice.
