Bellary: Former Kudiligi deputy superintendent of police Anupama Shenoy has now approached the Karnataka State Women’s Commission alleging harassment by her seniors, reports said on Wednesday.

According to reports, Shennoy has written a seven-page letter to the women's panel in which she has accused Superintendent of Police (SP) R Chetan of harassing her.

The letter, dated June 4 - the day she submitted her resignation, was sent to the Commission through one of Shenoy’s close relatives.

The missive states that she did not receive co-operation from her subordinates. The woman officer further held the SP responsible for her resignation. The former DySP alleged that secret documents at the Kudligi Police Station were released by the SP when she had gone on a 19-day leave, due to which she had to suffer mental agony.

Shenoy also stated that several memos were issued against her for frivolous reasons after coming back from leave. The former officer alleged in the letter to the Commission that the SP sent the leave letter submitted by her to the medical board for examination in May.

She has requested that the letter be probed by the Commission itself, instead of the police. In his response, SP Chetan said that he had acted in Shenoy’s case as per the norm. He said if he wanted to harass her, he could have sent an adverse report about her to the seniors.
