Chaos engulfed a busy road in Nalasopara East when a policewoman, believe to be in a drunken state, removed her clothes, poured oil on her body and began assaulting pedestrians on Friday night. After being alerted by locals, the Tulinj police station rushed to the spot and restrained her.

The police said assistant sub-inspector Anita Pawar, who lost her husband several years ago, appears to be mentally disturbed. She was recently transferred from Mira Road police station to Nalasopara, but is yet to join duty at her new posting.

A resident of Bharat Pendhari Nagar, locals said, Pawar often creates nuisance in the neighbourhood. They said it is difficult to predict her nature as she turns into a different person after consuming alcohol. Pawar has two teenage sons. Earlier this week, she went bald.

dna could not immediately ascertain if Pawar had any history of psychological issues.

On Friday night, Pawar dashed to the road outside her house, took off her clothes and began manhandling those who came in her way. Tension mounted when the public saw her pouring a liquid all over her body. Fearing that it could be petrol and she might set herself ablaze, they informed the Tulinj police.

"This is not the first time she has created nuisance. We've complained about her many times, but the police do not take any action," said Amit Pendhari, local resident. He alleged that Pawar had once attacked a woman constable when a team of cops were trying to subdue her.

Senior inspector Bajirao Kalantre from Tulinj police station said they have made a note in the station diary. "We sent her for medical tests to find out if she was under the influence of alcohol. We will send a report to our department about the incident."

Kalantre added, "Adequate action would be taken if such incidents take place in our jurisdiction. We suspect she has some psychiatric problems."
