Mumbai police will soon submit its report to the Home Department in connection with seven policemen accused of aiding two gangsters of the Pandav Putra gang to make an extortion call to a businessman in 2011.
"Further action will be decided by the Home Department," said DCP Nisar Tamboli (Zone II). Tamboli added that no seperate criminal case would be registered against the policemen in the matter.
The seven — inspector Balkrishna Gurav, assistant sub-inspector Pramod Gaikwad, constables Devendra Pange, Nandlal Devare, Usha Bagul, Kavita Borse and driver Sanjay Girkar — were suspended in December last year.
In February 2011, the seven escorted gangster Deepak Walekar and his aide Ramesh Junnagade, arrested in an MCOCA case, to JJ hospital for a medical check-up. There, Walekar allegedly made an extortion call to a south Mumbai based builder.
The builder approached the police and departmental inquiry was set up. The seven were found guilty of negligence while on duty.
