An engineer was arrested on Monday for allegedly assaulting a woman who had confronted him for allegedly damaging her car on December 20, last year.


Police said Shailendra Patil was arrested from Bhandup after the police traced his car from the number that was provided to them by the victim who clicked pictures Patil and his car.

“He was produced before the court and was granted bail on a surety amount of Rs. 4,000,” said police sub inspector, Raju Shirke. The Park Site police had registered an FIR under various sections of the Indian Penal Code including rash driving, causing grievous hurt, causing insult and outraging modesty of a woman.

 “I was called to the police station to identify him,” said Janice D’Souza, the 30-year-old woman who suffered internal injuries in her ear because of the assault.

On December 25, HT reported about how D’Souza was made to run between two police stations when she tried to register a complaint against Patil who slapped her after he allegedly damaged her car and was confronted by D’Souza.

D’Souza tried to register a complaint but the Powai police had turned her away saying the incident happened outside their jurisdiction and she was sent to Parksite police station. The Parksite police station, however, refused to register her complaint until she got a medical check done. D’Souza had to return without filing her complaint. She contacted HT after the police helpline failed to offer any assistance.

A day after HT reported the matter, on December 25, the Powai police contacted her and had asked her to visit them to register her case. Her FIR was finally taken on December 27.
