Filing FIR gives grief to ex-NSG commando, top cop steps in

Delhi Police’s tall claims on ‘truthful registration’ of cases have fallen flat on its face once again. An Indian Army official posted at Siachen Glacier had to take a 15-day emergency leave and rush to Delhi to get an FIR registered on behalf of his brother. His brother and his family members were allegedly thrashed by some alleged goons, who were hell-bent on capturing their house at east Delhi’s Laxmi Nagar, and the police were allegedly not registering an FIR for the same.

When Nayak Hanuman Prasad – who was posted at the Siachen Glacier in March 2014 – got to know about the incident on January 18, he started sending facsimile messages to Delhi Police reportedly through channels that include the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) and even the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO). Hanuman Prasad has also reportedly served as an NSG commando between 2011 and 2014.

When nothing seemed to have worked, Prasad took an emergency leave on January 25 and rushed to Delhi. He alleged the police officials at east Delhi’s Shakar Pur police station refused to register an FIR right on his face. “I was forced to run from pillar-to-post and submit my complaint (dated January 28) to the SHO at Shakar Pur, DCP’s office and Joint Commissioner’s office,” said Prasad.

Prasad further said, failing to get the FIR registered even after that, he met Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi on Thursday (February 12). It was only after Bassi intervened in the case, an FIR was registered on Friday (February 13). However, three days before he met commissioner Bassi, he had to request Indian Army to extend his emergency leave by 15 days.

A copy of the complaint was also forwarded to the Vigilance Branch of Delhi Police and the expert unit was requested to look into an alleged nexus between builders and police in this regard. Suspects named in the FIR, in possession of Millennium Post, include one Kushal Chand Garg, Omkar Singh, Monu Chaudhary, Satya Prakash Chaudhary, Saurabh Chaudhary, Goldi, Chautey Lal and Naresh Gupta. They were allegedly led by Garg, who claims to be the owner of the property and the case already landed in court around a year ago.

They have been booked under sections 354 (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 394 (Voluntarily causing hurt in committing robbery), 395 (Punishment for dacoity), 427 (Mischief causing damage to the amount of fifty rupees), 452 (House-trespass after preparation for hurt, assault or wrongful restraint) and 506 (Punishment for criminal intimidation) of IPC.

On January 18, all of them entered the premises of Prasad’s brother and allegedly thrashed him and his family members with sticks and iron rod. They also robbed them of cash and valuables worth around Rs 2 lakh and allegedly threatened the family to leave the premises immediately.
