The Thane Police have booked two police officials for allegedly abetting suicide of a 24-year-old woman constable, who ended her life on Wednesday afternoon in Thane. While ACP Shamrao Nipungey is deployed at the Thane police headquarters, Amol Devram Fapale is a police constable in Mumbai. Both have been booked under section 306 (abetment of suicide) of the Indian Penal Code.
As per the complaint, Subhadra Vasant Pawar, 24, was in relationship with Fapale and the two were supposed to marry this year. However, Fapale doubted Pawar of having an affair with Nipungey. On the day Pawar committed suicide, she allegedly got call from Nipungey after which Fapale argued with her.
A police source says that, “As per her phone records, Pawar was calling Nipungey for reasons related to work. We also found that Nipungey had assured her for place where the workload would be less so that she gets some time for herself. However, Pawar’s brother, who is also a police constable, alleged that both the accused used to harass her. He alleged that Nipungey called her every day and promised her stress-free posting.”
The officer said Pawar allegedly committed suicide after an argument with Fapale. “She hanged herself from the ceiling fan with a saree at her house in Manisha Nagar, Kalwa. It was Fapale who spotted the body and informed the neighbours and the police. She was rushed to the hospital, but was declared dead on arrival. It was her brother who filed a complaint against Nipungey and Fapale,” the officer said.
