Acting on orders from the Metropolitan Magistrate's court at Ballard Pier, the MRA Marg police on Monday filed a complaint against retired Assistant Commissioner of Police Shamsherkhan Pathan for allegedly registering a false complaint against a man.
According to police sources, the complainant, Naveen Kumar Hazari, has alleged that he was implicated in a false case of cheating in 2011.
Hazari, in his application, has said that two businessmen, against whom he had registered a complaint of cheating due to non-payment of dues, filed a false complaint against him. He has claimed that Pathan, then senior police inspector of Antop Hill police station, registered an FIR against him, following which Hazari was arrested a month later.
The complaint said that Hazari was kept in police custody for 36 hours before being produced in court -- in violation of rules. It also said that money was demanded from Hazari to dismiss the case.
"We have registered a complaint and are making inquiries. After the investigation is complete, a report will be submitted by the MRA Marg police to Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone 1) and he will take a call on further action in the case," said Additional Commissioner of Police (South Region) Krishna Prakash.
The complaint has been filed under various sections of the IPC for cheating, defamation,criminal intimidation, intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace, extortion by putting a person in fear of death or grievous hurt, voluntarily causing hurt to extort property or to constrain to an illegal act, voluntarily causing hurt to extort confession or to compel restoration of property, house trespass after preparation for hurt, assault or wrongful restraint, police officers said.
