Police officer threatens couple instead of registering complaint
A police officer allegedly misbehaved and threatened a couple at Garfa’s Shahid Colony on Monday night. The victim woman and her husband lodged a complaint against that specific officer with the top police brass on Tuesday. An inquiry against the accused police personnel was initiated.
The couple wanted to lodge a complaint against the owner of a restaurant situated in the ground floor of their residence. But the accused police officer allegedly started to threaten them on behalf of the restaurant owner.
On Monday night, the police officer locked the couple in their house. Later, he took them to the police station. On lodging her complaint, the woman alleged, the accused police officer Prantar Banerjee verbally abused her using derogatory remarks. The officer even threatened her to register false cases against them.
“The officer threatened of trapping us with a false case if we go against the restaurant owner. He said that a case will be opened that we run sleaze racket in our flat. We’ll be put behind bars,” the couple reportedly said in their complaint with the high ranked police officer against the accused police officer.
The couple further alleged that the restaurant, which is run by a businessman at their ground floor, has no fire license. They have also flouted several civic rules. The owner threatened the couple to hush up the matter, otherwise officers like Banerjee will arrest them.
Last week, the owner of the restaurant broke the windowpane of the complainant’s car. The couple, demanded compensation. But the restaurant owners threatened them saying that a false case will be lodged against the couple saying that they run sleaze racket in their flat.
“The accused officer is working hand in glove with the restaurant owner against us. I have appealed to the higher ranked police officer to look into the matter,” the couple said their complaint. However, investigation has already initiated against the accused officer, a top police brass said.
