Mangalore: Harassment case - Committee meets; ASI, ACP fail to appear

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangalore (SP)

Mangalore, Jun 6: The committee set up by the city commissionerate to deal with sexual harassment at workplace,  met for the first time on Wednesday June 5, and took up the complaint of sexual and other harassment made by Pandeshwar assistant sub-inspector of police, Shreekala, against city south assistant commissioner of police (ACP) T R Jagannath.

The meeting was chaired by assistant police commissioner, Kavita. Complainant Shreekala was expected to make an appearance, but she failed to attend the sitting. It is said that she had not received the advance notice served on her by the committee to appear before it. The accused ACP also did not appear before the committee.

In view of these things, it was decided to hold the committee meeting again on June 13.

At the same time, the complaint relating to promise of doubling the investment filed against Shreekala has been taken up by the police. As she fears arrest in the case, she has applied for anticipatory bail. Sources said that Shreekala chose not to attend the sitting of the committee on Wednesday, as she faced the prospect of being arrested. In the meanwhile, ACP Jagannath, who had gone on a ten-day leave after the committee was appointed, joined duty on Wednesday.

There were demands for the suspension of the ACP pending inquiry, from certain social service organizations, who argued that it becomes difficult for a junior to participate in inquiry proceedings when senior official is on duty.

Home minister T J George had promised of transferring the ACP. Although it is said that Jagannath has been transferred to Bangalore, city police commissioner Manish Karbikar said that the written order is yet to be received by the commissionerate. Sources in the department said that the transfer orders, even if issued, will not come into force till June 7, as the house is in session.

    the ASI did not appear both the hearings as she has nothing to prove...there is no word of harassment in her original complaint...she is doing this as there are many cases of fraud against her...even the commissioner has said to the press that there is no word of sexual harassment as
    reported in TIMES OF INDIA...the ACP was not asked to appear the hearing...this shows that the ASI is trying to smear the ACP's name

    I fully agree with Mr. Bhaskar Shetty
    No one knows what is the truth ? who & all is commented here nothing knows about Ms Shrikala or ACP. due to grudge any one might have spoiled ACP's Name. we cannot directly blame ACP without knowing the truth. So be patience all the truth will come out..........soon.why she is not comming in front of the committe From the department no one has given any statement about him. They might tell about him better than normal public. please don't give one sided result atleast try to know other side of the case.

    ACP transfer only drama for save him. "Neenu Hodedante maadu naanu attante maaduttene" and that committee also doubfull.Committee included some one close friends of ACP and ther is no one officer dare to talk against him. Better commitee include with great officer Mr Gangi Reddy.He will investigate true story.Anyway we need real justice.

    Don't judge the case one sided. Shreekala is not a innocent female. She also have several cases against her for cheating and she is on anticipatory bail to evade arrest. She may diverting mind and getting sympathy of the people by blaming ACP with harassment. We cant judge anything just because she is female.

    During BJP days police officers who committed all sorts of crimes were either transferred or promoted. Did you ever raise your voice Jeevan? You become aware of your sense of justice now!

    BHASKAR..You are picking some info from the same article about some cheating case (where daiji world has not published much details) and making your frim opinion about the ASI in the form of judgement. If you are from Mangalore, then I expect you must be knowing this ACP whose infamous involvement in Gold shop Cheque case will give you fair introduction of ACP. Sametime, the cheating case against ASI is most recently registered after the ASI's complaint recked-up and any case could easily comeup when ACP level person so wishes !

    Think this case will be 'fixed' one way or the other!
    CP, DYSP,
    SP, PP...
    All are masters at 'fixing'!
    Sreesanth thought he was 'one-up' and see where he has landed!
