Kolhapur: Maharashtra Home Minister R R Patil on Saturday assured that strict action would be taken against all
those found guilty in the Kolhapur sex scandal case.
Addressing a press conference here, Patil said that an
inquiry into the case has found three police officers, and a
head constable guilty, but action could be taken against them
only after the divisional inquiry was 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 (SP) Yashsvi Yadav, Dy SP
Vijay Parkale and police inspector Dnyaneshwar Munde have been
found guilty. However, a divisional inquiry against them is
"Constable Yuvraj Kamble is also not innocent in this
case," he added.
A policewoman recruit in the Kolhapur police training
school alleged 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 also 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 added.
