Atulchandra Kulkarni, joint commissioner of police, crime, said, “The inquiry has been completed. We have received the inquiry report. The report has now been sent to the commissioner of police, who will take necessary action. There is evidence against some policemen based on which action can be taken.”

The model, along with seven other models, was taken to the sessions court by a model co-ordinator and auditioned by Dossa in the first week of May. She, along with two others, got selected for the assignment in Dubai and was paid Rs1lakh as token amount by the gangster’s aide Khayyumuddin Sayyed.
