An argument ensued between the two parties and when the complainant and her friends reached near her apartment, the accused followed them and again started abusing them, the police official said.

"The accused then called their friends and thrashed the complainant and her two friends. They also molested her," police said.

The inspector said that initially the police personnel had registered a non-cognisable offence which was on Sunday changed into an FIR, following which the accused were arrested.

"A report has been sent to the seniors against three police personnel, who registered just an NC instead of a proper FIR and did not inform their seniors about the incident," Patil said.
