Navi Mumbai police commissioner Hemant Nagrale on Friday transferred the assistant commissioner of police (ACP) of Turbhe division, Kiran Patil, to the control room, punishing the latter for his shoddy investigation in an illegal arrest and extortion case. Amol Zende has been made the new ACP of Turbhe division after Patil’s transfer.

Senior police inspector of Turbhe police station, Ramchandra Deshmukh, and sub-inspector, Sanjay Yadav, were both suspended in the same case earlier this week. On October 17, a realtor Ketan Chug had lodged a complaint at the Turbhe police station against ‘Metro Developer and Others’ for using forged documents in relation to a plot in Nerul. Based on this, sub-inspector Sanjay Yadav arrested developer Suresh Jain. “Yadav, Chug and two other accomplices also wrongly confined Jain and his son and demanded Rs5 crore from them,” Nagrale said. Once out on bail, Jain filed an application alleging that a false offence had been registered against him. “It was revealed that ACP Kiran Patil did not supervise the case well, and hence transferred him,” Nagrale said.
