A 26-year-old model, who has alleged that Deputy Inspector General Sunil Paraskar raped her causing embarrassment to the Maharashtra police, has claimed in her First Information Report (FIR) that the senior cop coerced her into giving him luxury gifts. Dna accessed and has a copy of the model's FIR and the statement she gave to the police.
In the police statement, the woman claims to have first met Paraskar around April 2013 when he was additional commissioner of north region and had helped her in a property dispute case, following which they exchanged numbers. It then states that after October 2013, when she filed a molestation complaint (in a different case) at Goregaon police station, Paraskar had sent her a message, saying: "You cannot handle this case alone, you contact me." But she claims that she did not contact him.
In the statement, she claimed that in November/December, 2013, Paraskar took her to a flat in a multi-storeyed building that he claimed was his. In this flat, she claimed, Paraskar molested her twice. "I got angry at this after which Paraskar apologised and we both left. After that Paraskar sent me several messages apologising for his behaviour," she said in the statement.
The woman said that she met Paraskar a week later in connection to buying a flat. Paraskar took her to a bungalow in Madh, and started apologising for his behaviour. "Paraskar then drank alcohol and started misbehaving with me. He later forced himself upon me and raped me," the victim alleged in her statement.
"In February 2014, I and my sister had met Paraskar at his office, where he gifted me a new iPhone and took my old phone. After this meeting, Paraskar started pressurising me to give him a gift stating that he got her FIR registered with Goregaon police. I gifted him a Longines brand watch worth Rs 70,000," the statement reads.
"Paraskar would message and insist to meet him. I met him at a hotel in Santacruz with my business manager. There I gifted him a Mont Blanc wallet, pen and perfume worth around Rs 57,000. Paraskar asked me if I could put him in touch with any person who could stop his transfer," the victim claimed in her statement.
