Four months back, a woman personnel, posted at provisions and logistics department, complained against the erring officer to the DCP concerned. But when no action was taken against the officer, she complained to the commissioner.

Later, 24 more personnel, ranging from constables to assistant sub-inspectors, complained against the inspector, who is posted at Provisions and Logistics Department of the force,
to the commissioner.

The complainants have alleged that the accused used words pertaining to physical attributes and made sexual overtures to them while threatening to spoil their career when protested, a senior official said.

The complaints are being probed by the vigilance branch and the sexual harassment committee. Action will be taken if the accused is found guilty in the probe, the official added.
