Panaji: A constable, attached to economic offence cell of  Goa police, is accused of assaulting an elderly women, over the issue of property.

Pushpa Keny, a resident of Taleigao has lodged a complaint with the Panaji police station alleging that police constable Suraj Tendulkar has been threatening and abusing her and family, for last several years, and despite series of complaints, no action has been taken.

On Friday, last week, Pushpa was attacked by the accuse, injuring her leg. Panaji police have registered a non-cognizable offense.

This is not the first complaint filed against the accuse. Similar nature complaints have been filed by the victim since 2008.

However, police authorities, have completely ignored the issue, by just giving the accuse a verbal warning.

 “Tendulkar has been harassing me and my family for several years over a property issue. Although the property has been equally divided among the family members, he is illegally trying to encroach into our share. He has since then made our lives miserable,” the victim woman said.

The dispute has been going on for more than a decade with at least 3-4 complaints filed with the local police against Tendulkar.

It is learnt that Keny had approached Chief Minister’s Office in 2013 demanding action against him. She has yet again requested the CMO to heed to the request without delay and to take necessary action against the accuse.
