Maha Home Dept proposes suspension of rape accused cop Paraskar
The Maharashtra Home Department has proposed the suspension of DIG Sunil Paraskar, who had been accused of raping a model.
Mumbai: The Maharashtra Home Department has proposed the suspension of DIG Sunil Paraskar, who had been accused of raping a model.
"The proposal to suspend Paraskar has been sent to Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan," a Home Ministry official told PTI on Tuesday.
A court in Mumbai had recently granted him pre-arrest bail, observing the complainant's behaviour and her e-mail exchange with him suggested consent.
Paraskar filed pre-arrest bail application on July 25, a week after an FIR was registered against him by suburban Malwani Police under sections 376(2)(rape by a police officer), 376 C (intercourse by superintendent of jail, remand home, etc) and 354(D) (stalking) of the Indian Penal Code.
The complainant, a 25-year-old model, alleged that Paraskar (57) molested and sexually assaulted her on two occasions in December 2013. According to her, she had met Paraskar first in 2012 when he was Additional Commissioner of Police with regard to a case.
Paraskar's lawyer argued that the allegations were false and pointed to the delay in registration of FIR.
