Senior police officers said dismissed police inspector Pravin Patil’s wife,an officer with Mumbai Police Crime Branch,is likely to face departmental action for not having informed the top brass about her trip abroad. Patil was dismissed from the force for not having informed the top brass about his trip,which was allegedly sponsored by the wife of an arrested person.

Patil,who portrayed the role of an encounter specialist in the movie Ab Tak Chhappan had gone for the film shoot,allegedly without informing his superiors. In 2006,Patil also went abroad with his family to Hong Kong and Bangkok. The trip was allegedly funded by the wife of a broker who was arrested by the Economic Offences Wing of the Mumbai Police in a securities related scam.

Police said Patil’s wife is likely to face departmental action as even she had failed to inform her superiors about her trip abroad with her husband.

“It is mandatory for officers to inform their superiors if they go abroad. It was not right on her part to make the trip abroad without informing. Departmental action may be taken against her for this,” said a senior police officer.

The officer said Patil was dismissed because he had struck the deal with the wife of the arrested person.

“She may not be dismissed as she does not seem to be the one who struck the deal,” said the officer.

The top brass of the Mumbai Police had learnt of Patil’s trip to Bangkok when the woman who sponsored his trip spilled the beans.
