Kolkata, April 26 (IANS) Two officers of a city police station were suspended for allegedly misbehaving with a woman who had come to lodge a complaint, a police official said Thursday.
“Additional officer-in-charge of Kalighat Police station Kalyan Kumar Dutta and sub- inspector Rabindranath Gupta have been suspended and departmental proceedings initiated against them,” said a senior police officer.
On April 23, a woman had gone to the Kalighat police station to register a complaint against her husband and other members of his family for allegedly abusing her physically. The two police personnel allegedly made indecent comments against her.
“The officer told me since your husband is not around, you need a boyfriend… They made incident remarks. I had approached the police station for justice but in return got misbehaviour,” said the woman.
It was only after the woman approached the media that the complaint was registered and the two officers were suspended. The woman’s husband has also been arrested.
