The police are yet to file a case against the women who allegedly sent security agencies in Mumbai and Pune on a wild goose by raising a false terror alert.
An officer from Bhoiwada police station said, “The GRP stated that the purse [containing fake info] was found in our jurisdiction, which isn’t true. It was near the reservation counter under GRP’s jurisdiction. We haven’t registered any case.”
The GRP officials stated that they too have not registered any case.
The Pune Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS), the Dadar Government Railway Police (GRP) and the Bhoiwada police, Parel, were on tenterhooks on Friday.
The woman had handed over the police a piece paper referring to terror strikes being planned across Mumbai and Pune. Later, investigations revealed that she made it up to get even with her paramour. The woman had given a purse containing the fake information to a couple of RPF constables. The paper had mention of a Pakistan-based outfit planning blasts, which were to be executed by a Pune resident — the woman’s paramour.
During questioning, the man told the Pune ATS officers that he was in a relationship with the woman for the past four years. Based on his version, the officers reached Dadar and detained the woman for questioning. It was here that she confessed to framing the man because she wanted to teach him a lesson for quarrelling with her frequently.
“Both of them are from Ratnagiri and know each other since their college days. However, the two had been bickering for the past 15 days after their relationship turned sour, ” said a police officer.
The police said that the man is married and has children, while the woman is single.
“She told us that the man was having multiple affairs and cheating on her. She even alleged that he had a dominating nature,” the officer added.
