Drama at 2 police stations as property dealer thrashed by people for “harassing” a woman


Nagpur:
High-voltage dramas were witnessed at Lakadganj and Sadar Police Stations when a property dealer was thrashed by people for allegedly calling a married woman on her mobile phone and threatening her for money. The incident was fallout of some financial dispute between the property dealer and the woman. The matter first went to Lakadganj Police Station and later was sent to Sadar police. The property dealer, identified as Lorrence Nair, is reported to have a good reach with a political party and the people who thrashed him also belong to a political party. The Sadar Police Station was turned into a hot scene of political activity as many bigwigs reached there and as a result, no offence was registered in the case. According to Sadar PI Rathod, neither of the parties lodged complaints and hence offence was not registered.

According to sources, the woman, resident of Lakadganj, had got married recently. Following some financial dispute, the property dealer was allegedly calling the woman on her phone and harassing her for money. However, when the brother of woman came to know about this harassment, he lodged a complaint with Lakadganj police. But the police, after considering the issue connected with married life of the woman, registered a non-cognizable offence. Allegations are that even after the complaint, the property dealer continued to torment the woman. Fed up with the frequent calls, the woman again narrated the ordeal to her brother. Enraged by the actions of Lorrence Nair, the brother of the woman decided to teach him a lesson. On Friday (September 19), when the property dealer was sitting near a ‘Paan Thela’ in Sadar area, the woman’s brother and his accomplices reached the spot and, first beat him up severely and then took Nair to Lakadganj Police Station in a red-coloured car. However, Lorrence told police that he was first taken to Kalamna and again thrashed in a closed room, said the sources.

However, the case took a curious turn when Sadar police came to know that the people, who had thrashed the property dealer have taken him to Lakadganj Police Station, a team of Sadar DB Squad was rushed to Lakadganj. The DB Squad brought the woman’s brother, his accomplices and the property dealer to Sadar Police Station. Soon the word spread and the top leaders of both the political parties started descending the Police Station. However, surprisingly, no complaint was lodged by any of the warring parties and hence no offence was registered by police.
