A high level departmental inquiry has been initiated against two Goa police officials--Nilesh Rane and Vinod Naik, accused of sexually abusing two girls who were rescued from a prostitution racket, a senior police official said on Monday.

“We have initiated inquiry against Police Inspector Nilesh Rane and constable Vinod Naik for their alleged involvement in prostitution racket,” Goa Inspector General of Police (IGP) Sunil Garg told reporters.

Two girls hailing from West Bengal were rescued from an alleged prostitution racket in April.

The girls accused the two police officials of sexual abuse and extortion in their statement recorded before Sub-Divisional Magistrate last month.

The IGP said the officer to head the inquiry would be appointed in some days.

Both the policemen were transferred to Goa Reserve Police (GRP) pending inquiry.
