Chandigarh: Haryana police teams
unsuccessfully searched former Inspector General of Police M S
Ahlawat, facing a case of alleged molestation of a woman
lawyer, in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh, police said on Saturday.

"After failing to find him at his Panchkula residence,
we had sent our teams to Delhi and UP, but failed to trace
him there as well. Our teams are now searching for him at
other places in the region," Yamunanagar`s Superintendent of
Police Sibash Kabiraj said.
Ahlawat`s anticipatory bail was recently dismissed by a
Yamunanagar court in a case of alleged molestation of a woman
lawyer eight years ago, after which the police issued lookout
notice and alerted airports against him to prevent him from
fleeing the country.

A Yamunanagar based woman lawyer had last week lodged
a complaint with the police, charging Ahlawat with sexually
harassing her when he was the Yamunanagar SP in 2002.

She claimed to have come into Ahlawat`s contact when
she had approached the Yamunanagar police in May 2002 to lodge
a case of dowry harassment against her husband.
The victim alleged that the officer had insisted on
meeting her in his camp office and allegedly tried to
establish illicit relations with her.

Ahlawat has been booked under sections 354 (criminal
force on woman with intent to outrage modesty), 323 (assault
with intent to voluntarily cause hurt) and 506 (criminal
intimidation) of the IPC.
