Kolhapur: Maharashtra Home Minister RR Patil on Saturday said strict action would be taken against all those found guilty in the Kolhapur sex scandal case, in which a woman recruit at a police training school was allegedly raped.

Addressing a press conference here, Patil said an inquiry into the case has found three police officers and a head constable guilty, but action would be taken against them only after the divisional inquiry is over.

"The report of inquiry made by police officer Maithili Jha is now with the Maharashtra government. In this report, prima facie Superintendent of Police Yashsvi Yadav, Deputy SP Vijay Parkale and police inspector Dnyaneshwar Munde have been found guilty. However, a divisional inquiry against them is still on. Constable Yuvraj Kamble is also not innocent in this case," he said.

A police woman recruited at the Kolhapur police training school alleged that she had been raped and forced to undergo abortion by Kamble.

Kamble has been suspended and arrested.

The state government had transferred Yadav for lack of supervision and suspended Parkale and Munde following complaints about their behaviour.

Patil rubbished reports that 11 policewomen had been sexually assaulted at the police training school.

"It is not true. Only one trainee lady constable was a victim," he said.
