NASHIK: Jalgaon district collector Abhijeet Raut has set up an all-women four-member team to probe into the allegations levelled by an inmate of a women’s hostel in Jalgaon city that a few policemen visited the hostel and forced her and a few other inmates to strip and dance before them.
Raut said, “The probe team has already visited the hostel twice on Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning. They interacted with the inmates and the woman. The team will submit its probe report soon. But it is yet to come across any evidence to suggest that such an incident took place.”
The probe team is headed by Trupti Dhodmise, a probationary IAS officer. The other team members are a psychiatrist from the Jalgaon general hospital, a gynecologist from a government hospital and a woman police sub inspector.
Raut said he would examine all aspects of the probe, including whether the incident really took place and the security at the hostel.
The matter was brought to Raut’s notice on Tuesday afternoon by some activists, who shot and shared the video of the woman levelling the allegations against the police. Raut and Jalgaon superintendent of police Pravin Munde immediately decided to form a team to probe the allegations.
The government women’s hostel has 18 inmates aged between 17 and 60.
The inmates are mostly women rescued in cases of Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act, domestic violence or victimized girls in cases of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Pocso) Act.
The video of the woman levelling the allegations sent ripples in Jalgaon on Tuesday.
The video shows the social activists not being allowed into the hostel. It then focuses on the woman alleging that policemen and other people came to the hostel on March 1 and told the inmates to strip and dance in front of them.
The woman further alleges that the policemen and the hostel staff were hand-in-glove.
Speaking to the media in Jalgaon, Jalgaon women and child welfare officer Vijaysinh Pardeshi denied the woman’s allegations but said the probe would bare the facts.
