Suspended Maharashtra police officer Sunil Paraskar discharged in model rape case

In the bail order, the court had also said jealousy could be a possible motive behind the complaint against Paraskar.

Suspended Maharashtra Deputy Inspector General of Police Sunil Paraskar, accused of molesting and raping a city-based model, was on Friday discharged by a sessions court here. “The court has discharged Paraskar from the (2014) case,” said Special Public Prosecutor Pradeep Gharat. Gharat also said that he will file an appeal in the Bombay High Court, challenging the order. The IPS officer had moved the discharge plea after the Mumbai police filed a 724-page charge sheet against him in May this year.Last year in July 2014, a first information report (FIR) was registered against Paraskar by the suburban Malwani police under sections 376(2) (rape by a police officer), 376 C (intercourse by Superintendent of Jail, remand home, etc) and 354(D) (stalking) of Indian Penal Code. The complainant, a 25-year-old model, had alleged that Paraskar (57) molested and sexually assaulted her on two occasions in December 2013.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>According to her, she had met Paraskar first in 2012, when he was an Additional Commissioner of Police, regarding a case. Soon after the FIR, the senior police officer had filed an anticipatory bail plea. Subsequently, in August 2014, a special court for women’s cases had granted Paraskar a pre-arrest bail observing that “it appears from the behaviour of the complainant and her e-mails that the act must be committed with consent.”In the bail order, the court had also said jealousy could be a possible motive behind the complaint against Paraskar. It also noted that even after the alleged offence, the complainant’s behaviour towards him was normal. After Paraskar’s suspension in August 2014, a preliminary enquiry (PE) by the Mumbai police in November had found professional lapses on his part while dealing with the victim before she filed a police complaint in the case.The officer was accused of having violated Central Civil Services (Conduct) Rules and his behaviour amounted to belittling the image of All-India Service Officers.According to police, Paraskar travelled with the model beyond his jurisdiction (to Navi Mumbai) and took expensive gifts from her without prior permission of his seniors. There were also regular conversations between them.

When she asked them to help her make her exit from the park as she did not know the way, the guards under the pretext of helping her had taken her to a secluded place and allegedly raped her.

Patil said, “A case has been registered last night. Guards have been detained, detailed investigation is going on and medical examination of victim and two accused is also being done.”

He said a case has been booked under Indian Penal Code section 376 (punishment for rape).

Ahead of Bihar elections, Maoists issue poll boycott threats in their strongholds

“Soon after the Election Commission announced the polling dates for Bihar, the Maoists started giving poll boycott calls in their strongholds in Jamui, Gaya and Aurangabad. It was done to give a message about their presence, which is gradually diminishing. We’ve seized handbills, posters and circulars from Maoist-infested pockets,” Arun Kumar, Inspector General, CRPF, told Firstpost.

The Left ultras have been issuing such threats over past several years with diminishing response from people. They had issued such diktats in Bastar, another stronghold, before Chhattisgarh assembly elections in 2013 and the general election of 2014 too. However, ignoring their threat, people came out in large number to exercise their voting right.

The Maoists have strongly criticised Bihar CM Nitish Kumar for following neo-liberal policies and ditching voters. They have reasoned that the right form of government couldn’t be formed through democratically held elections. In the last 65 years, the Indian public has only been exploited, they maintain.

The Maoist cadre has appealed to wage an “armed war against the establishment”. During its combing operation, besides, the posters and pamphlets, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) has recovered arms and ammunition, and huge cash. According to latest data, the security forces have recovered Rs 8.95 crore from Naxal-infested districts in Bihar. “Our battalions have recovered arms, detonators and IEDs in large quantities. The Maoists wanted to create disturbance and inflict damage on a large-scale during polls,” added Kumar.

Police, quoting locals, said Rao, a resident of the same village, killed the boy as part of a witchcraft-related ritual.

The accused, said to be in his mid 30s, took the boy from an anganwadi (child care centre) to his house, where he performed pujas. He then cut the boy’s head, collected the blood into a vessel and sprinkled it all over his house, they said.

The incident came to light when the victim’s mother went to the anganwadi. Not finding her son there, she enquired and was told he has gone with Rao, police said.

The woman went to Rao’s house along with a group of villagers and found it locked. They broke the lock and found the boy’s body in the house. Villagers launched a search for Rao and managed to get hold of him. They tied him to a pole, thrashed and set him ablaze after pouring kerosene, police said.

Women journalists harassed by phone stalker, face police apathy in Akhilesh Yadav’s Uttar Pradesh

Kavita’s first person account of her team’s ordeal evoked outrage on social media and has suddenly spurred the authorities into action after months of apathy.

Since January 8, 2015, Kavita, editor of Khabar Lahariya, a local language newspaper in rural ​Uttar Pradesh, has been inundated with lewd and threatening calls. Going by the name ‘Nishu’, the caller seemed to know the whereabouts of Kavita’s colleagues as well, and has been reportedly harassing the women journalists frequently with lascivious calls, leaving them shaken.In a first person account of her ordeal to The Ladies Finger, Kavita said that every attempt made by the team to get help from the police did not yield much result. After placing a complaint with the Women’s Helpline, when she attempted to file an FIR, the policemen at the Banda police station allegedly took turns to speak to the stalker on the phone and even tried to dismiss the case by offering solutions like changing her number and asking the men in her house to abuse the stalker. But they persisted and finally two FIRs – in Banda and Chitrakoot police stations – as well as a complaint in Mahoba were registered. However, the calls did not stop. <!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Instead, Kavita was reportedly asked to recount in explicit detail what the stalker spoke about, by Anirudh Prasad Pande, an Inspector at the Crime Branch in Banda. “Tell me which gaalis, and how he would say them? Whatever he would say on the phone, repeat that for me,” he reportedly said.While the team has been running from pillar to post from the last eight months, requesting for some progress in the investigation, the huge uproar on social media following Kavita’s account, seems to have finally woken up the system. Kavita told dna that she has been getting calls from various police departments regarding the issue now.Last year, in the backdrop of the Badaun and Azamgarh incidents, when a female reporter questioned Uttar Pradesh CM Akhilesh Yadav on the law and order situation in the state, he had retorted, “I hope you have not faced any danger!” Let’s hope he has a better response this time for the resilient women of the Khabar Lahariya team, who have been battling several social odds while doing their job.

However, the parrot seemed to have became conscious of khaki clad policmen and kept mum when his cage was brought near Janabai, to see if it would hurl any obscenities at her.

“There is a dispute over land and property between the woman and her stepson. We watched the parrot carefully but it did not utter a word at the police station after being confronted by the complainant,” Police Inspector P S Dongre told reporters.

Although Hariyal never showed any alleged penchant to abuse the woman, the police decided to hand it over to forest department officials, after taking into account the harassed mental condition of the aged woman.

Missing bodies expose tantrik’s ‘paiso ki barish’ con

Skulls, skeleton, gelatin sticks, detonator, swords, tiger skin and fake notes recovered; baba flees, accomplices held

The tribals of Vikramgadh were in for rude shock when around seven buried bodies went missing from a burial ground there a few months ago.

The mystery was cleared on Thursday, after police searched baba’s ashram. By then, baba had fled and police had to be content arresting two of his accomplices. The accused self-styled godman, Tukaram Dambali, 35, used to bring ‘clients’ to his ashram atop a hillock of Sakhra village in Vikramgadh, around 125 kms from Mumbai, through his agents in Mumbai and Gujarat. The agents lure gullible clients with the promise of doubling their riches. Tukram, after unearthing buried corpses from behind his ashram, used the skulls and other remains of the dead tribals for puja to impress clients.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –> “We had received complaints from the tribals about bodies going missing from the burial ground.
