Case lodged against 3 cops who intervened in monetary dispute
The Swargate police officials registered a case against five persons, including three policemen from Cantonment police station, for allegedly forcing the director of a private education institute to return money to two complainants to whom he had promised jobs last year.
Matter of Rs 2 lakh
Khan Burahanulla Abdul Baki had accepted Rs 2 lakh from Aslam Kasim Bagwan and Momin Wahaf Nijamuddin promising them jobs.
Since Baki failed to keep his promise, last September, Bagwan and Nijamuddin approached the Cantonment police station.
The case against the accused was registered after JMFC A G Sangatani passed an order on the basis of application filed by Baki, alleging that the police officials, and the complainants, forced him to write cheques in Bagwan and Nijamuddin’s names.
Acting on Baki’s plea the court passed an order on June 9 asking the Swargate police to register a case against the five accused.
Swargate police officials registered a case against Bagwan, Nijamuddin, Sub-Inspector Vasudev Tukaram Patil and Constables Nilesh Bhausaheb Patil and Sunil Sadashiv Khatake under Sections 329, 347, 167, 34, 120(B) of the Indian Penal Code.
“The person, who had allegedly failed to keep his promise, later agreed to return the money to both the complainants and the matter was resolved,” Police Inspector Sushma Chavan of the Cantonment police station said.
Chavan said that the police had not forced Baki to make payment towards the complainants.
