RAW Director

A Director of Research and Analysis Wing was arrested by police here after she allegedly trespassed into the residence of one of her colleagues and damaged his car and window-panes.

Nisha Priya Bhatia, under suspension at present, was arrested from her Sector 18 residence after a case under section 451 (trespassing), 427 (mischief causing damage to property), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 268 (public nuisance) of IPC was registered.

According to the Station House Officer of Section 16 police station Inderjit Singh, a complaint had been received from RAW Director (Training) alleging that Bhatia had been pressing his door bell in the dead of night besides throwing flower pots, breaking window panes and smashing the wind screen of his car.

She was arrested and produced before a court here which remanded her to 14 days of judicial custody.

Bhatia was in news two years back when she had attempted to set herself afire outside the Prime Minister's Office and later attempted suicide from the building of the Central Administrative Tribunal.

She had filed an application with higher authorities in the RAW few years back alleging that she was being sexually exploited, a charge which could not be verified by a committee set up by the Cabinet Secretariat.
