A senior officer from Thane rural police said they had filed a closure report under the C summary, appealing to the court to shut the case. A C Summary report states that a misunderstanding led to a case being registered. It was also filed under section 169 of the Criminal Procedure Code, which states that the accused was released as the evidence was deficient.
“The police should have filed a B Summary report which states that the case was false and filed with malicious intent. Under this, action can be initiated against the complainant under sections of the Indian Penal Code for filing a complaint with intention to malign someone’s image,”said lawyer Sudhir Gupta who represented the two women.
