There is a fresh twist to the Provogue case.

Police constable Ashok Bhosale, who moved a Mulund court against the state Criminal Investigation Department (CID) chief, S.P.S. Yadav, filed an application on Thursday asking for summons to be issued to a south Mumbai spa.

Bhosale wants the court to check the spa’s records showing that Inspector General of Police (Konkan range), Parambir Singh, was “undergoing treatment” there on September 13, 2009, the day he is alleged to have threatened Provogue owner, Salil Chaturvedi.

“The court has called for the records from the spa by March 5,” said Bhosale’s lawyer, S.T. Markandey.

The CID’s interim report, filed in October, stated that Bhosale had retracted his statement that his seniors officers had asked him to plant cocaine in Chaturvedi’s house. The CID alleged that Singh was responsible for Bhosale’s retraction.

The report said a day before Bhosale’s retraction, Chaturvedi had received a call from a person called Sanjay Pahadia. Pahadia allegedly handed over the phone to Singh, who demanded that Chaturvedi withdraw his complaint.

The CID said that Pahadia called Chaturvedi from a phone number listed in name of someone called Apoorva Shah. The CID claimed that Pahadia and Singh were both in Marine Drive when the call was made.

Bhosale’s application alleged that the CID had fabricated this.

On February 12, Bhosale had filed a complaint in court alleging that Yadav and another officer, R.D. Khade, had abducted him and forced him to state that he had planted the drugs at Chaturvedi’s house in 2005.
