THE Mahatashtra government has formally reinstated suspended IPS officer Sunil Paraskar into the force.

Home department sources said he was set to take charge as the new Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) in Mumbai.

The officer was suspended in August 2014 after a city-based model lodged a complaint accusing him of raping and molesting her, and the Mumbai Police gave an adverse report.

The Mumbai Police had sent two status reports on the case to the home ministry. In May last year, the Crime Branch filed its chargesheet against Paraskar (57) under sections 376 (rape), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 354 (molestation) of the Indian Penal Code.

In December 2015, a local court dropped all the charges citing lack of evidence. A departmental inquiry is still under way.
