Cop asks woman to take to prostitution

Report By Akela Bureau of Investigation: Prakash Chaugule, working as a police inspector in Parksite police station, Vikrholi has been accused of molesting a woman who participated in a protest against a builder who had allegedly cheated the locals and indulged in illegal constructions. Chaugule is accused of having trashed the woman, pushed her on her breasts and abused her. He even mockingly told her to go to Kamatipura,the red-light area in South Mumbai to make some fast money as Subhash Runwal the said alleged cheater builder was not able t o give her anything. On September 18, the woman filed a written complaint (copy is currently with Akela Bureawu of Investigation) with Commissioner of police against Chaugule. The complainant lives in the Indian Smelting and Refining Company Ltd colony, Kanjurmarg (W) which was earlier owned by Birla Group. Runwal purchased the company a few years ago and wanted to remove the families from the colony. There are 77 families residing in the colony. Runwal is adopting all means to vacate the colony of its residents. It is learnt that Runwal has appointed goondas, namely Amit Bhogale, Krishna Lad, Rajesh Pujrai, Bhau Korgaonkar and officers of the Parksite police station to torture the residents and molest the women among them. Inspector Chaugule is one of the police officers who is said to be on the payrool of Runwal. A Shiv Sena MLA also is protecting him claiming to be the builder's partner. On September 15, around 3.30 p.m. Runwal tried to demolish a colony building without having any BMC order and despite the matter being sub judice. The colony residents opposed Runwal's activities. A little later, Insepctor Chaugule appeared on the scene with a few police personnel. Instead of taking action on the builder's men, Chaugule attacked the protesting women. He terrorized the demonstrators. He trashed a young boy who sustained minor injuries. He held a woman's hand and pushed her back. Abusing her in very filthy language,Chaugule also applied pressure on the woman's breast. "Chaugule pushed my hand back. He abused me in very filthy language stating, "paisa kamana hai to kamatipura me jao. Bahut Kamai hogi. Subhash Runwal tum logon ko kuchh nahi dene wala. Wo bahut bada builder hai. Usne BJP ke leaders ko kharid liya hai. Dekhna 30 September ko poori colony thod dega," said a woman. (It translates in English as "If you want to earn money go to the Red light area of Kamatipura. You will earn a lot. Builder Subhash Runwal will give you nothing. He is a big builder. He has purchased the BJP leaders. You see, on September 30, we will demolish the entire colony." The protesting woman then approached the Parksite police station but the police refused to register a complaint against Chaugule. "All allegations are false. I am ready to face any inquiry if they have evidence then they should come forward with it. Runwal builder was trying to demolish the colony. The women opposed it by threatening to commit suicide and pouring kerosene on themselves. To maintain law and order, the police stopped the demolition," Chaugule said. "Subhash Runwal a local Shiv Sena leader and Parksite police are crossing their limits. They are forgetting that the matter is sub judice. Inspector Chaugule is acting like a pimp of Runwal and not a police officer. He will be behind bars soon," said Sudhir Singh Vice President of NCP Youth Wing.
