Mumbai, April 18 (IANS) Maharashtra Home Minister R.R. Patil Wednesday said tainted police officer Anil Mahabole has been suspended for allegedly raping a woman police inspector.
Patil's statement came during the ongoing Maharashtra assembly session.
Mahabole, an assistant commissioner of police, was Tuesday charged with raping a woman inspector who resides at Kurla in central Mumbai.
The victim had approached Joint Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Rajnesh Seth and Jt CP (Crime) Himanshu Roy last week, alleging that Mahabole raped her several times.
She alleged that Mahabole visited her Kurla house and offered her sweets laced with intoxicants, which made her unconscious. The victim had further alleged that Mahabole raped her after that and also made an MMS clip of her.
"Mahabole then blackmailed her to continue having physical relations with her. He also paid her regular visits in the absence of her husband and raped her repeatedly," an officer from Mumbai's Azad Maidan police station said.
Following the complaint, cops appointed a senior level officer to make preliminary inquiries into the matter.
"The inquiries confirmed that the victim was raped. The Azad Maidan police have registered a case of rape against Mahabole," said Mumbai Police spokesperson Nisar Tamboli.
