In her complaint to Navi Mumbai police, the girl had accused the DIG of touching her inappropriately at her birthday party at her residence last year. Police had registered a molestation case in December last year following which the DIG had gone missing. After the girl went missing, the DIG’s anticipatory bail was rejected by a sessions court.
