Maharashtra: Cop booked for raping woman on false promise of marriage

MUMBAI: An offence has been registered against a policeman for allegedly raping a 42-year-old woman on the false promise of marriage in central Mumbai, an official said on Thursday. Based on a complaint, an FIR under section 376 (rape) of the IPC has been registered against an assistant police inspector posted with the Nagpur police, the official said. According to police, the accused policeman and the victim knew each other since 2019, when the latter had approached the police to lodge a complaint against her husband. The victim and the accused had travelled to Mumbai and stayed in a lodge, where he allegedly raped her after promising to marry her, he said. The woman recently approached the Bhoiwada police station here, as the accused had not fulfilled his promise, the official said, adding that further probe is underway.

MUMBAI: With the Shiv Sena on the warpath in a bid to reclaim the party, the rebel Eknath Shinde faction retaliated strongly on Sunday bringing higher education minister Uday Samant over to Guwahati to join the coup. The rebel camp also moved the Supreme Court against the disqualification notices sent to 16 of their MLAs by deputy speaker of the state assembly Narhari Zirwal. A second petition demands that Zirwal recognise Shinde as group leader of the Shiv Sena's legislature party. Late in the night, Shinde tweeted against the MVA alliance: "How can Balasaheb's Shiv Sena support those who have ties to Dawood Ibrahim who orchestrated the bomb blasts? I took these steps to oppose this." मुंबई बाँबस्फोट घडवून निष्पाप मुंबईकरांचा जीव घेणाऱ्या दाऊदशी थेट संबंध असणाऱ्यांना हिंदुहृदयसम्राट वंदनीय बाळासाहे… https://t.co/4laJD1hAWp— Eknath Shinde - एकनाथ शिंदे (@mieknathshinde) 1656260089000Samant, who was earlier with the NCP, is the eighth minister to switch sides from chief minister Uddhav Thackeray's cabinet.

The rebel group will seek more time to respond to the disqualification notices sent to its 16 MLAs. The deadline is Monday evening. "We should be given one week's time since this is not an emergency," said rebel MLA Deepak Kesarkar. Meanwhile, BJP leader and Union minister Raosaheb Danve stirred the pot with his comment at a rally in Jalna where he said, "We will only remain in the opposition for two-three days". Fifteen rebel MLAs received Y+ protection from the CRPF by Sunday morning, a day after governor B S Koshyari had written to the Union home secretary. In his letter, he said that he had written to the state police to provide protection to 47 MLAs. "Police security is a state subject. This shows the hand of the BJP," said the Shiv Sena's Arvind Sawant. In order to boost the morale of the cadre, Shiv Sena held rallies and demonstrations through Sunday. However, party leader Sanjay Raut stoked a new controversy with his explosive utterances against the rebels at a rally in Dahisar. "The 40 MLAs are living corpses. Their souls are dead," he said. He later added, "The corpses of 40 MLAs will come here. We will send them for a post-mortem to the state assembly."

Taunting the ministers who had switched sides, he said Sandipan Bhumre was once a watchman in a sugar factory. "Water supply minister Gulabrao Patil was a chai-tapriwala and will go back to being one," he said. Raut's comments drew a strong reaction from rebel MLA Deepak Kesarkar. "Such was Bal Thackeray's greatness that he gave opportunities to all. Raut should control what he says," he pointed out. At his rally in Santacruz, Aaditya Thackeray dared the rebels to resign and face an election. "The bow and arrow symbol will remain ours and the rebels will have to merge with another party," he warned. He said 15-16 rebels were with Shiv Sena and wanted to return. "It's sad to see these MLAs enjoying themselves in a hotel. There is a flood in Assam and people don't have enough to eat."

"Legally, disqualification can be invoked for anti-party activities. The MLAs did not attend meetings that were called in an emergency situation," he said. He added that after 2003, a splinter group with 2/3rds majority could escape the anti-defection law only if they merged with another party. He also said that the deputy speaker could perform all the duties of a speaker and a no-confidence motion could not be moved against him if the state assembly was not in session. On the issue of the whip, he said, "A whip is selected by the original political party, not by the legislature party."

APART FROM its impact on various governance-related issues, the rebellion in the Shiv Sena that could lead to the collapse of the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in the state will also have a bearing on the impending choice of the Mumbai Police Commissioner. The term of the incumbent Commissioner Sanjay Pandey ends on Thursday and the chances of an extension to him, which has to be given by the central government, are slim in the current circumstances.Sources said that the government, which currently has its hands tied up with the prevailing political situation, may end up giving the additional charge for the post to a serving official if it cannot make up its mind about Pandey’s replacement. A government official said, “While there are frontrunners to the post, the change in the political situation has made the issue all the more complex. Powerful politicians like Eknath Shinde who would have had a say in pushing someone’s name forward will no longer be in contention.” The official added, “In the current climate, where law and order can be an issue especially when the rebel MLAs come to the city in case of a floor test, the MVA government will be all the more careful about whom it wants to give the reins of the police force. In the changed dynamics, they may also go in for giving another officer the additional charge in the meantime.” Sources said that in the past, when the Commissioner had been away, additional charge was given to the senior-most joint commissioner in the city. In the current scenario, Vishwas Nangre Patil, the Joint Commissioner (law & order), and Rajwardhan, Joint Commissioner (traffic), both from the 1997 batch, are the senior-most officers in the city.Prior to the rebellion, Thane Police Commissioner Jai Jeet Singh and Vivek Phansalkar, Director General-Police Housing, were seen as frontrunners for the post of the Mumbai Police Commissioner. Sources said that if the Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government remains in power, it is Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar who will weigh in on the choice of the Mumbai Police Commissioner.

Mumbai: Maharashtra’s political crisis has further deepened as the rebel MLA Eknath Shinde’s camp on Sunday went to the Supreme Court, filing an appeal against the Shiv Sena’s move to disqualify him and 15 other MLAs. The top court is likely to hear the matter on Monday. Apart from this, the Shinde camp has also challenged the appointment of Ajay Choudhari as the Shiv Sena Legislature Party leader and the rejection of the no-confidence motion against Deputy Speaker Narahari Zirwal.Also Read - Radisson Blu Guwahati, Rebel Maharashtra MLAs' New Camp, Closes Fresh Bookings Till June 30.

Further deepening the crisis for the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government, another Maharashtra minister, Uday Samant, on Sunday reached Guwahati and joined the dissident camp of MLAs led by his cabinet colleague Eknath Shinde. Samant, who went incommunicado during the day, reached Guwahati from Surat. He came aboard a chartered flight and landed at Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International (LGBI) Airport here along with three others, sources said. Samant's convoy, escorted by Assam Police, was seen entering the Radisson Blu Hotel off NH-37. So far, Maharashtra cabinet ministers Gulabrao Patil, Dada Bhuse, Sandipan Bhumre, and ministers of state Shamburaje Desai and Abdul Sattar have joined the rebel camp. Another minister, Bachu Kadu of Prahar Janshakti Party, and an Independent minister from Sena quota, Rajendra Yedravkar, have also been camping with Shinde. Dissident legislators of Shiv Sena, which heads the ruling coalition, have been camping in Guwahati, around 2,700 km away from Mumbai, since June 22. A group of rebel Shiv Sena MLAs, led by Shinde, were taken to Surat from Mumbai on June 21 and then flown to Guwahati the next day. Since then, several chartered flights carrying dissident MLAs have landed at LGBI Airport. The Maharashtra Legislature Secretariat on Saturday issued summonses to 16 of the rebel Shiv Sena MLAs, including Shinde, seeking written replies by the evening of June 27 to the complaints seeking their disqualification. The MLAs, after receiving the notices, have been huddling inside the hotel since Sunday morning, discussing various options to respond to the notices, sources said.

Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut’s fresh salvo at the rebel party MLAs camping at a Guwahati hotel, on Sunday, calling them living corpses who would be sent to a mortuary for post-mortem on their return from the Assam capital, received flak from the Opposition and the Eknath Shinde camp, which termed it as a death threat to the rebels.“When they step out of Assam, they won’t be alive at heart. They know what can happen in the fire which has been lit here now. The dead bodies of all these 40 MLAs will come to Mumbai (from Guwahati), we will directly send them to the mortuary for post-mortem,” Raut said at a rally of Shiv Sena workers in Dahisar on Sunday.Calling the rebels buffaloes, the Sena MP said, “There is a temple in Guwahati where buffaloes are sacrificed. These 40 buffaloes have gone there to be sacrificed.”Deepak Kesarkar, the spokesperson for the rebel Shinde Camp objected to Raut’s choice of language and his statement that the MLAs have many fathers, saying that “there is too much outrage in the rebels”.“He is insulting women in our families and it won’t be tolerated. He is saying anything he wants and damaging the party. No party should have a spokesperson like Sanjay Raut. He is on a mission to finish the party. It is because of his statements that all the MLAs are angry and more are joining us,” Kesarkar said.“He has called us corpses. He should remember that it was on our votes that he became an MP earlier this month. He has also called us animals. If we are animals and corpses then he should have some self-esteem and resign as MP. He should contest the polls afresh. He needs votes of only 41 MLAs, let’s see from where he gets it. It’s said that a Rajya Sabha member is speaking like this. He is the chief spokesperson of Shiv Sena. We are very much part of the Sena. On what basis are we being targeted by the Sena? We are challenging the decisions to disqualify our members and leader Eknath Shinde,” he added.He said that the rebel camp currently has 39 Sena MLAs and 12 Independents on its side and if Raut continues to speak like this, more will join in the coming days.Bharat Gogawale, the chief whip of the Shinde camp said, “Party members are joining us as they are upset with Raut’s statements and language. The more he speaks, the more will be the members joining us. He is damaging our party.”The BJP, too, came down heavily on the Sena MP on social media, claiming that it was a threat to kill the rebel MLAs once they return to Mumbai.Facing a backlash over his remark, Raut issued a clarification later in the day, saying that his statement should not be taken in its literal sense as what he meant was that the rebel MLAs have lost their souls after betraying the party and are living corpses whose post-mortem will be conducted at Vidhan Bhavan (during a floor test).“There is nothing controversial in my statement. One must understand my speech. What I said is that those MLAs who are in Guwahati are like living corpses, their souls are dead. What is a body worth when the soul is dead? These living corpses will come to Mumbai and we will send them to Vidhan Bhavan for post-mortem. This is what I said. What is wrong in it?” Raut said.
