A woman lawyer, who has accused former Inspector General of Haryana Police MS Ahlawat of molesting her, has gone missing from her home, her father has said in a complaint to the police.

Jagjit Singh, father of the lawyer, lodged a complaint with Yamunanagar police on Thursday night that his daughter has gone missing from home.

In the complaint, he has said that three police personnel, including two women constables, who were posted at the lawyer's house for her protection, were unaware of her whereabouts, Station House Officer (Yamunanagar city) Manoharlal said.

Ahlawat had Thursday moved a local court for anticipatory bail after he was booked for allegedly molesting and intimidating the woman lawyer eight years back when he was superintendent of police.

The case, which is similar to Ruchika molestation case in which for Haryana DGP SPS Rathore was convicted and finally jailed, was registered on Tuesday against Ahlawat by the Yamunanagar police under various sections of the IPC.

A Special Investigation Team has been formed to conduct the probe.

Ahlawat has been booked under sections 354 (criminal force on woman with intent to outrage modesty), 323 (assault with intent to voluntarily cause hurt) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC in the case.

The victim had recently met Haryana DGP Ranjiv Singh Dalal at Panchkula. She claimed to have come into Ahlawat's contact when she had approached the Yamunanagar police in May 2002, to lodge a case of dowry harassment against her husband.

The victim alleged that Ahlawat had insisted on meeting her in his camp office and allegedly tried to establish illicit relations with her.
