The Worli police on Wednesday charged three persons, including the son of former Mumbai police commissioner R.D. Tyagi, for allegedly outraging the modesty of woman.
The complaint was registered following a brawl between Raj Tyagi, a resident of Purnima building at Worli and Tarana Vaswani who lives on the 13th floor with her sister. The fight was over the feeding of stray dogs.
The liftmen of the building, Prakash Gawade and Goyal Gondardive, were also charged.
While the liftmen were arrested, no action has been taken against Raj. “We have not found enough evidence so far to nail him [Raj],” said Deputy Commissioner of Police Suhas Varke while confirming incident.
Police officials said that Vaswani would regularly feed pariah dogs and cats by throwing leftovers in the building compound.
The residents of the society objected to this. Raj was upset as the mess this would create could be seen from his first floor flat.
On Wednesday morning, Vaswani repeated her actions causing several strays to gather in the compound.
An enraged Raj allegedly called Vaswani and abused her and her sister over the phone, police said.
Vaswani told the police that Raj later came to her flat with the two liftmen and allegedly used foul language. The police registered a case against Raj and the liftmen, on Vaswani’s complaint, for outraging the modesty of women and trespassing.
Neither Raj nor his father could be contacted despite repeated attempts.
