A pregnant lady advocate has alleged that she was illegally detained and slapped by a police inspector when she went to lodge a complaint,a charge denied by the latter.
The advocate,Sanjana S Badsiwal,who is one-month pregnant and has a two-and-a-half year-old kid,said the alleged incident took place on June 12.
Addressing a press conference on Friday,Badsiwal said she was abused and assaulted by her brother and sister-in-law over a long-pending property dispute.
She went to Kapurbawdi police station here to lodge a complaint against the duo.
Instead of taking down the complaint,Senior Inspector B R Chowdhary allegedly abused her without any provocation.
When she threatened to report the matter to the Police Commissioner,Chowdhary allegedly slapped her and put her in the lock-up along with her kid,the advocate said.
Badsiwal said she was booked under IPC section 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons means) and granted bail by a local court the next day.
Chowdhary has denied the charges levelled by the advocate,who has filed a complaint against him.
