A senior police officer probing into the Exclusive Floors robbery case has been removed of the charge of the investigation after the victims complained against him to the police top brass.
The case has now been shifted to the Crime Investigation Agency (CIA) of Gurgaon police.
Amarjeet Kataria, the SHO of Sushant Lok police station, was removed from the investigation by police commissioner KK Sindhu on Monday.
On March 17, five robbers armed with daggers had barged into the house of Nitin Kumar when his 55-year-old mother and twin children were sleeping. The attackers handcuffed the family and also slapped the elderly woman.
The SHO had allegedly filed a simple theft case instead of robbery, despite the repeated requests of the victim couple. He had also allegedly misbehaved with the couple. The police commissioner took the decision after meeting the couple -- Nitin, MD in a software company, and wife Chetna Manglik, HR professional.
DCP (crime) Maheshwar Dayal would now handle the investigations. “The sketch of one of the suspects has been released and we have assigned teams for investigation. We will soon solve the case,” he said.
“The removal of the officer is a big relief to us. The SHO mentally harassed us and gave us wrong impression about the case. We were not happy with his negative approach. Now the case is with crime branch and we hope the culprits would be arrested,” Chetna said.
