Nagpur: A notorious criminal, who had unleashed terror on a Dhantoli-based family and tried to grab their landed property, was arrested and sent to jail on the orders of Commissioner of Police. A PSI and other staff of Dhantoli Police Station were accused of ‘shielding’ the goon. Taking the serious view of allegation, the top cop intervened and ordered arrest of the goon and sending him to jail.
According to the FIR lodged by the complainant Nisha Singh (name changed), resident of Dhantoli, stays with her father and minor sister. Nisha’s mother has expired in the year 2016. On the evening of August 1, 2017, the accused goon Bhaskar Naidu alias Anna (45), resident of same Jagdish Nivas, Dhantoli, taking advantage she being alone in her house, misbehaved with her and doled out life threats. Scare to the core, Nisha decided to lodge a complaint against the accused and went to Dhantoli Police Station walking. At the agte of the police station, the accused Bhaskar Naidu threatened her and tried to desist her from lodging the complaint. But anyhow she entered the police station but was taken aback as the goon and a police sepoy indulged in angry wordy duel with her as she insisted on registering a case. However, on the intervention of another police constable, a ‘non-cognizable’ offence was registered and Nisha was sent back home.
Later after two days, one of Nisha’s relatives named Lalsingh Thakur who had gone out of station but arrived in city two days later, was apprised by her about the said incident. Subsequently, Thakur met the Commissioner of Police on August 5 and gave a written complaint in this connection. On the intervention of the Commissioner, the matter came before a DCP for thorough investigation. The DCP called the complainant to Sitabuldi Police Station and enquired from her in detail about the sordid episode. Later the DCP ordered an ACP to go through the entire matter and act accordingly. In turn the ACP ordered Dhantoli Woman PSI Sangeeta Yadav to launch a probe in the matter. In the meantime, the accused Bhaskar Naidu got hint of the action being initiated against him.
Subsequently, the accused enacted a drama in which his wife created uproar at Dhantoli Police Station and lodged a complaint against Nisha Singh, her father, relative Lalsingh Thakur charging them of ripping her clothes and beating her. On the basis of the complaint of accused Bhaskar Naidu’s wife, the PSI Sangeeta Yadav reached the spot (Jagdish Nivas) and started probe. But the nearby residents gave statements in favour of Nisha Singh and Lalsingh Thakur and levelled allegations against the Anna Naidu family. In their statements the residents told police that the Naidu family, who is tenant of Nisha Singh, frequently create ruckus and planning to grab landed property of her.
The investigating PSI Sangeeta Yadav found the complaint of accused Bhaskar Naidu’s wife false and baseless. On the other hand, on the complaint of Nisha Singh and Lalsingh Thakur, Dhantoli police arrested the accused Bhaskar Naidu alias Anna, produced him in a court and sent him to jail. The complainant Nisha Singh has cast aspersions on the role of Dhantoli PSI Rathod and Gajanan Major accusing them of ‘protecting’ the accused.
