Mumbai, Mar 4 (UNI) Joint Commissioner of Police (law and order) K L Prasad here today issued another notice to all the 85 police stations in the metropolis, directing them to register First Information Report (FIR) of a complainant.
The new notice was issued in the wake of Bombay High Court's directive yesterday to the Maharashtra Government, asking it to initiate criminal action against police officer of Kurla police station for attempting to shield a suspect, who had allegedly abetted suicide of a teenaged girl from Bailbazar locality in Kurla.
Following the high court's order, three officers were suspended yesterday itself.
This is the second time that Mr Prasad has issued a notice to all the police stations pertaining to registration of FIR. Earlier, he had directed the police stations to register FIR first and then investigate the matter.
A division bench, comprising Justices R M S Khandeparkar and Amjad Sayyad, found Police Inspector Dilip Yadav and PSIs Murad Abdul Mulani and Vishwnath Tambe prima facie guilty of shielding an estranged lover Umesh Arote, who had allegedly harassed the victim compelling her to commit suicide.
