Hunt for woman’s ‘cheating husband’ leads police on wild goose chase for ‘flesh trade’

A woman from Manimajra kept police on their toes,complaining that she suspects her husband of infidelity and even informing them that she had seen him in the company of some women at a posh housing society in the Mansa Devi Complex (MDC) area.

A woman from Manimajra kept police on their toes,complaining that she suspects her husband of infidelity and even informing them that she had seen him in the company of some women at a posh housing society in the Mansa Devi Complex (MDC) area.

The police officials from MDC police station acted swiftly on the complaint and even went on to carry out an early morning raid at the housing society only to find that the husband of the woman – who works as a bouncer at a discotheque in Chandigarh – was not there and only three girls lived at the flat.

After working on the case throughout the day with ACP Krishan Singh Hooda himself monitoring the investigation,police found that they can’t register a case.

After police couldn’t find anything tangible in the case,the woman withdrew the complaint. Deputy Commissioner of police,Panchkula,Ashwin Shenvi,said,“It was not a cognisable offence so we didn’t register an FIR. The woman withdrew the complaint.”

However,police said they didn’t take action against the woman for wasting time of government officials as the woman had the right to file the complaint.

According to police sources,they were suspecting that a flesh trade was being run from one of the flats in the B-block of the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) Employees Welfare Organisation (HEWO) housing society,following which the police party was dispatched to look into the matter.

However they found that,at most,it could be a matter of adultery. “We have filed the daily diary report (DDR) of the incident and the matter is being investigated,” said Shenvi.

Station House Officer (SHO) of Mansa Devi police station,Balwant Singh,said,“The woman called the control room following which a police party was despatched to the spot. But we found nothing in the case and the woman who gave her address as resident of Manimajra later withdrew the complaint stating that she would sort out the matter with her husband personally.”
