On the complaint of a Delhi Police head constable,the IP Estate police have booked an inspector,Gajraj Singh,under the SC/ST Act.

Gajraj Singh is the former station house officer of the IP Estate police station where the complainant,Head Constable Brij Lal,is posted. In his complaint filed six months ago,Brij Lal said Gajraj had “hurt my sentiments”. On this,an inquiry was launched by the Central district police and an FIR was lodged against the officer a few days ago.

According to sources in the police,the complainant had sought a vigilance inquiry into the matter. “After the inquiry,directions came from the Commissioner of Police,Yudhbir Singh Dadwal,and other senior officers to register a case against Gajraj Singh,” said a source.

While Special Commissioner of Police Satish Chandra and Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (Vigilance) M N Tiwari said they did not “remember this particular case”,Joint Commissioner of Police,Northern Range,Karnal Singh confirmed the registration of the FIR. He said: “The central district had conducted an internal inquiry into the matter. On its basis,a case has been registered at the IP Estate police station.”

Singh added that the case had now been transferred to the Delhi Police’s Crime Branch.

“If it finds anybody guilty,a chargesheet will be filed and appropriate action taken. It is a very serious offence,” he said.

Gajraj Singh was transferred from the IP Estate police station about six months ago and is currently posted in the Right to Information Act Cell at the IGI.

According to the sources,he was removed as the SHO only after the matter came to the notice of senior officers.
