NEW DELHI: In a late night reshuffle the Gurgaon's Joint Commissioner of Police Traffic Bharti Arora was transferred on Monday along with 11 others. Arora earlier accused the Gurgaon Commissioner of Police Navdeep Virk of torture over rape case probe.
In a letter written by Bharti reportedly accused Virk of threatening and mental torture. JCP claimed that she was handed over the responsibility of supervising and investigating a rape case which she found to be a false case where in an entire family including old parents, a brother and a sister were framed by the Police Commissioner.
Arora a 1998 batch IPS officer has been transferred as DIG Welfare and Training to Police Headquarters in Panchkula.
The case involves a a divorcee who has alleged that Ajay Bhardwaj, son of a former bureaucrat — with whom she was in a live-in relationship and two children — promised to marry her but later refused and even threatened her. The woman has even approached the Punjab and Haryana High Court. Bhardwaj was arrested in 2014.
According to Bharti, the charges against Bhardwaj were ‘wrong’. “When I started the investigation, I realised that the CP has falsely implicated an entire family. I objected and told him ‘Sir, this is wrong’. He then tortured me mentally and threatened me saying, ‘I advise you to leave the case, or you will suffer consequences” said Arora.
The top cop Virk, rubbished Arora’s allegations saying “I am sad that a valued colleague had to issue false statements in the media in matters which are official and under the consideration of the police headquarters, to hide her own misconduct.”
