A day after the court was apprised of the alleged illegal detention of the wife of one of the accused in the Arun jaitley CDR case,the woman appeared before a city court with a complaint that she was “humiliated and abused” by police.

On Wednesday,Neeraj Nayar,one of the private detectives who is accused of illegally obtaining the call detail records of BJP leader Arun Jaitley and several others,had told the court of Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sanjay Bansal that his wife was called to the police station on March 12 and “illegally detained” overnight.

On Thursday,Nayar’s wife Monica appeared before the CMM court and alleged that the Special Cell officers had called her to their office around 1 am on March 12 and kept her in the lock-up for the whole night.

“She was released on Wednesday afternoon after the matter was reported to the court” her lawyer said. She also alleged that she was detained in the absence of any woman officer and she was also “humiliated and abused by the officers in front of several other staff”.

The CMM court,which had asked the DCP,Delhi Police,to file a report on the basis of the allegations made by Neeraj on Wednesday,granted three more days to the DCP to file the report.

The CMM has also asked the woman to move an “appropriate complaint” before it.

“In my view,it would be appropriate that she (woman) file an appropriate complaint if she wants to prosecute any official. It should not be limited to detention only,” the CMM said.

The matter was brought to the notice of the court when Neeraj and co-accused constable Arvind Dabas were produced before the court after expiry of their police custody on Wednesday.

Delhi Police had registered a fresh FIR against Neeraj and Dabas stating that they had used certain SIM cards in the crime.
