Cop accused of teasing woman forced out of society
The Additional Commissioner of Police, Barrackpore Commissionerate on Thursday asked a woman to file a written complaint against a constable of Kolkata Police who has been allegedly teasing her for quite some time. The police have said that the victim, along with her 9-year-old daughter, used to stay at a quarter in Nodapara of her elder sister who has worked with the police for a brief stint. The victim is a divorcee. The victim mostly stays in the house because of her kidney ailment. Taking advantage of her staying alone in the flat, Sheikh Karim , a constable of Kolkata Police often teased her and even tried to molest her after she refused to talk to him.
