Three days after booking Punjab inspector general (IG) Gautam Cheema for abducting a proclaimed offender, the SAS Nagar police on Tuesday registered a molestation case against him.
The police also registered the case against Ajay Chaudhary, suspended CEO of Ambala Cantonment Board, and Rashmi Negi, complainant in a rape case against alleged conman Davinder Singh Gill at Panchkula, for hatching the conspiracy.
The case against the three has been registered under sections 354 (outraging modesty), 452 (house trespass after preparation for hurt, assault or wrongful restraint), 342 (wrongful confinement), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 120b (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) along with the Arms Act, following the complaint by Gill’s wife Kricpy Khaira.
In her complaint, she had alleged that on March 20, around 10.30pm, Cheema, along with his commandos and two associates (Chaudhary and Negi), entered her house at Sector 70 here after breaking open the door. They locked her husband in a room at gunpoint, but he informed the police on the phone.
When the police reached the spot, Cheema told them it was his family matter and he would handle it and the police left the house without any action, the complaint reads.
She alleged that the IG, who was under the influence of liquor, molested her.
SAS Nagar SSP Inder Mohan Singh Bhatti stated that after conducting a preliminary investigation into Kricpy’s complaint, the FIR had been registered against Cheema and others.
Police sources said during the investigation that the police had recorded the statements of all witnesses, besides the three accused.
The investigation was conducted by SP (D) Gursharandeep Grewal in which he found the accused guilty.
