Nagpur: In a significant move against the sloppy investigation conducted by Sitabuldi Police Station, Nagpur Police Department has filed default report against former Sitabuldi PI Jagvendrasingh Rajput following the departmental inquiry, informed Additional Commissioner of Police, Shashikant Mahavarkar.

Following the complaint of the victim Sitabuldi police made servant the key accused into the matter and registered bailable offence against Friends Garment owner, Kishan Agrawal. However, Sitabuldi police somehow forgot to register Atrocity section in the case.
