A senior woman officer of the Government Railway Police (GRP) here has lodged a case against an Assistant Police Inspector (API) from Yavatmal district for allegedly sending her obscene videos and pictures. A First Information Report was registered by the Bandra GRP on Tuesday and later transferred to D N Nagar police station in whose jurisdiction the woman officer lives. According to the complainant, few days ago she got a message on Facebook from a man who introduced himself as 'API Rahul Kumar Raut' attached to Economic Offences Wing in Yavatmal district of Maharashtra.
