Joint commissioner of police (traffic) Bharti Arora, who has accused Gurgaon police commissioner Navdeep Singh Virk of trying to influence investigation in a rape case, on Wednesday claimed that she has been blocked from accessing the Gurgaon traffic police page on Facebook.

Arora made the allegation despite Haryana DGP Yashpal Singhal on Tuesday asking the two senior police officials to refrain from speaking to the media about their differences.

Talking to the media, Arora claimed that on Tuesday, Virk’s public relations officer (PRO) had asked her PRO for details of the Gurgaon traffic police’s Facebook account, including the password.

Arora said the password of the account was changed and she has been blocked from accessing the page.

“I tried to open the Facebook page of the Gurgaon traffic police and found that I was blocked. I can no more access it. The CP’s PRO had asked our PRO to send the details of the traffic police’s Facebook account and page. The password was then changed by them,” Arora alleged.

When asked about the allegations, Virk refused to comment.

Meanwhile, Arora also alleged that personnel from the Crime Investigation Department (CID) have been spying on her.

“I have been noticing CID officials following me. I am not a criminal and this is a breach of my privacy,” said Arora.

Arora also claimed that some people have written threatening posts against her.

“I have sent a complaint to the SHO of the Sector 29 police station to take appropriate action against the people. The complaint has been sent against two people,” Arora said.

However, SHO of the Sector 29 Ashok Kumar said that he has not received the complaint yet, but he will take strict action against the accused.

Sources said Arora is now planning to send a complaint to the DGP against the alleged spying on her and she being blocked on Facebook.

Meanwhile, RWAs of Sectors 12, 4, 7, 5 and 23 drafted a letter demanding fair enquiry in the rape case over which the two officers have been trading charges. They letter was directed to CM ML Khattar, the members said.
