Chennai: The State Human Rights Commission directed an inspector to pay a compensation of Rs 25,000 to a woman on charge of assaulting her and obtaining her signatures on blank papers six years ago. On instigation of chit fund company the cop assaulted her in Vandavasi.

In the petition, P.Mallika of Vandavasi submitted that she joined a chit fund floated by Maheswari in the local area and she paid amount for 31 chits. After paying total amount for chit, Maheswari failed to return the amount.

 

On March 18, 2013, she met Maheswari and told her that if she failed to return the amount, she will take legal action against her. Four days later, two police constables from Vandavasi South police station came to her house and forcefully took her to the police station. Maheswari was  standing in the police station and threatened Mallika.

 The Inspector Murugan and other cops also threatened Mallika and demanded her to pay an amount of Rs.10 lakhs or give an undertaking in the stamp paper stating she had no relationship with her.

 

As she refused to put her signature on blank papers, the cop assaulted her repeatedly and abused her. She fell down in the police station and became unconscious. She gained conscious at about 6 pm and later the police officials obtained her signatures on the blank papers and on some documents. She sustained injuries due to assault. Her son Yogaraj took her to the Government Hospital, Vandavasi for treatment. She sought action against the inspector and other cops.

In the reply, Murugan and other cops denied that averments mentioned in the complaint. The cops never threatened the complainant and not obtained her signature on any documents.

 

The SHRC Judge D Jayachandran said considering oral and documentary evidences it is proved that inspector Murugan assaulted Mallika in the police station. The judge directed inspector to pay a compensation of Rs 25,000 to Mallika.
