The Mumbai crime branch on Thursday submitted a report mentioning their findings to the Director General of Police (DGP) and Home Ministry in the alleged rape case filed against Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Sunil Paraskar by a model.
Mumbai crime branch submitted their second report stating the details of their investigation into the case. According to sources in the crime branch, the report consists of details about the progress made in to the case by the investigating agency. The report can spell trouble for Paraskar. "The report has all the details about the conduct of Paraskar when he was posted as the Additional Commissioner of Police, North Region. It was here that he met the victim for the first time and they developed a friendship. There are various instances where Paraskar's conduct has violated the service norms and can cause problem for him," said a source from crime branch. He added, "There is enough ground for a departmental enquiry against Paraskar".
When the Additional Commissioner of Police (Crime) KMM Prasanna was contacted, he confirmed that the report was sent to the DGP's office and home ministry, but refused to divulge details of the report. "All I can say is that we have submitted the factual report to DGP and Home Ministry and as for the action that needs to be taken, the govt and the DGP will decide."
On July 23, a Mumbai-based Gladrags model had lodged a complaint against Paraskar accusing him of sexual assault and rape between November 2013 and March 2014, when he was posted as additional commissioner of police (North Region) with the Mumbai Police. On the basis of the complaint, a case was registered at Malwani police station and, later, it was handed over to the Mumbai crime branch for further investigation.
