Gurgaon top cops wash dirty linen in full media glare
Much to the chagrin of the Haryana Police, the fight between Gurgaon Police Commissioner Navdeep Singh Virk and Joint Commissioner of Police Bharti Arora has hogged media limelight, as Arora accused Virk of “falsely implicating” a family in a rape case and harassing her “mentally” for objecting to his “illegal” advice. She has filed a written complaint to Haryana DGP YP Singhal and sought a CBI enquiry into the matter. Virk has, meanwhile, denied the charge levelled by Arora.
The Haryana DGP on Tuesday said that the matter will be probed by a senior officer. The case involves Ajay Bhardwaj, an executive with a multinational corporation and the son of Gurgaon former Deputy Commissioner RP Bhardwaj. He has been accused of rape by his live-in partner, with whom Bhardwaj reportedly has a child.
The JCP has accused Virk of “falsely implicating” Bhardwaj’s family in the rape case. She claimed, “When I started investigation into the rape case, I realised that the Commissioner of Police has falsely implicated the entire family in the case. I objected and told him ‘Sir, this is wrong’. Then he started torturing me mentally and asked me to leave the probe into the case otherwise I will be harmed,” Arora alleged.
The Joint CP also claimed that the woman, who has filed the rape case, had filed three other rape cases on previous occasions.
“I want a CBI enquiry in the entire matter so that facts are unearthed,” Arora said.
Earlier, Arora had written to the DGP, seeking his intervention, saying she feared that Virk might harm her career. Reacting to the charge, Virk said, “These allegations are wrong... What can I say if someone is saying something?”
Virk has also sent a report to the DGP alleging that Bharti is bent on saving the rape accused whose sister is known to the JCP. The CP said the concerned officer is levelling false allegations to hide her own illegal actions. “The rape victim has been given security on the orders of the Supreme Court and she has made several complaints about the misconduct of JCP Arora,” Virk added.
In Panchkula, the DGP said, “Both sides have given their version. Ms Bharti Arora and Mr Virk have separately written to me. I am examining both communications. Whatever needs to be done in the matter will be done as per law.”
The DGP added, “Both should have avoided going to the media since they had brought the matter to my notice. They should have stuck to and followed the departmental procedure in such matters and waited for the outcome. I am hopeful that now they will refrain from approaching the media in the matter.”
