Mumbai Police Crime Branch sources claimed on Saturday that investigations into the alleged rape complaint lodged against suspended Deputy Inspector of General (DIG) Sunil Paraskar by a model will be completed this month, following which a chargesheet will be filed against the officer.

Paraskar was booked by the Malwani police in July this year for alleged sexual exploitation of a model while he was the Additional Commissioner of Police (North) in 2013. The case was subsequently transferred to the Mumbai Police Crime Branch.

“The model in her complaint had stated that Paraskar had allegedly molested and sexually assaulted her on two occasions in December 2013. This month, we will finish the probe. There is some evidence available with crime branch and some witnesses who had seen Paraskar and the victim at Madh Island in Versova and Navi Mumbai,” said a senior official.

“We are going to speed up the probe into the charges against the suspended DIG, and complete it this month,” said DCP (Detection) Dhanajay Kulkarni, the official spokesperson of Mumbai Police.
