Nagpur: The superintendent of police, Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB), Nagpur,  P.R. Patil. who was booked by the city police for demanding sexual favours from a woman constable deployed under him, was granted a regular bail from the district and session court here on Thursday.

The city police had booked Patil for molestation following a complaint of a 28-year-old woman constable. The woman has claimed that she had been been targeted since August 2017 till October this year, prompting her to lodge the complaint.

The constable first filed a formal complaint before the state ACM’s special committee aga-inst sexual harassment of women at the workplace,which constituted a probe following the Supreme Court’s Vishakha judgment. The inquiry was conducted under the supervision of a senior woman officer from the police department, based in Mumbai.

After Patil was found guilty in the inquiry, the decision was taken to register an offence following the final directions issued by the ACB’s state in-charge director general of police Sanjay Barve. The woman was working as a driver on deputation in the unit.
