Mumbai: Wife of a deputy commissioner of
police (DCP) of the city police has lodged an FIR against an
unidentified constable alleging criminal breach of trust after
the latter did not return her rifle given to him to get the
servicing done.

The complainant Hemalata Salve, wife of DCP Vishwas Salve
attached with Special Branch, lodged the FIR alleging that a
police constable deployed at their residence on security duty
did not return the gun after she gave it to him for servicing,
police said.

"In a written complaint to the police, Hemalata claimed
that a rifle procured by her had been entrusted to a constable
in August 2008. She told him to get the servicing done at a
gun service centre. But the constable never returned the gun,
she claimed," said Sunil Deshmukh, Senior Inspector of Mahim
police station.

The victim, who stays in police quarters in Dadar in
central Mumbai, had on November 6, 2009 given a written
complaint following which a preliminary inquiry was conducted
and the FIR was registered yesterday, Deshmukh added.

The complainant could not recall the name of the
constable, he said. "We are trying to establish who were on
duty at the DCP`s residence in this period," he added.
