Panaji: The Goa Pradesh Congress, Youth Congress and the Mahila Congress have submitted a memorandum to the Director General of Police demanding immediate arrest and suspension of PSI Rushal alias Narayan Pinge, who is booked under Sec 376,420,323,506-ii, 427 of IPC subsequent to complaint from a victim girl.

The delegation led by State General Secretary-GPCC Janardhan Bhandari, Mahila Congress President Beena Naik and Youth Congress President Adv. VaradMardolkar along with other Youth Congress and Mahila Congress office bearers submitted the memorandum on Friday to the DGP demanding immediate action against the said police officer.

Congress has also demanded custodial interrogation or a high-level departmental inquiry, so the accused person doesn’t go scot free.

“The victim girl should get justice in this case, and this case should not be dumped with high level pressure.” Janardhan Bhandari said.

He said that so many days have passed since the formal complaint was lodged by the victim girl, but no action has been taken by the police.

It may be recalled that a woman from Mormugao had filed a police complaint against a PSI attached to Mormugao Police Station for raping & cheating her. The offense was registered under Sec. 376,420,323,506-ii, 427 of IPC.

“The Police department has failed to arrest and suspend the said accused PSI . Instead of arresting and suspending the said accused PSI , the PSI was transferred from Mormugao Police Station to South District Reserve line. Why is the special treatment been given to this PSI?” Adv. Varad Mardolkar questioned.

“The way Police authorities have handled the entire issue & failed to give justice to a victim has raised serious concerns about the integrity of the police force in the State.” He said.

Even after the entire nation had demanded strict and immediate action against rape accused after the horrific “Nirbhaya” rape case, it seems police have not learnt lessons yet. Here the accused person is a police officer and his seniors are trying to protect him Mahila Congress president Beena Naik lamented.
