Nagpur Traffic DCP Chinmay Pandit on Friday night suspended traffic constable Nandkishore Tayde, for sending lewd messages to a woman colleague.
Tayde had been sending objectionable messages to his colleague since a month. The incident came to fore when the woman complained about the same to her husband, who is also a traffic constable. The husband then got involved in a scuffle with the accused cop on January 6, in which both cops sustained injuries. However, a preliminary inquiry was conducted and a report was submitted to the DCP.
Speaking to Nation Next, DCP Chinmay Pandit said, “According to the procedures under Vishaka Guidelines for sexual harassment at workplace and a preliminary enquiry, the woman narrated the entire ordeal to me and showed me the lewd messages. On the basis of her complaint I have suspended the cop and transferred the case to Jaripatka Police Station for further investigation.”
