As the woman’s husband is working abroad, she  south  time to consult him on this  case  but again trouble  been given to the victim  on 2 June , she complained to the Vasai gaon police station. We have registered cases under Section 354 (a)(molesting), and 354 (d) (stalking) of the IPC against Dias, and is absconding,said a Vasai gaon police official.

To this API Langi denied the allegation and said in the first place the case comes under the purview of the Vasai police station and not the LCB, Palghar and we just guided the victim to approach the Vasai police and since she complained to me, I called Dias to warn him. Just because Dias  feared that a FIR would be registered against him, he took to social media and has even brought in the CM into the picture, said the official.

I am ready to undertake a narco test and I also want Dias to undergo the same, so that the truth prevails, but first we will have to arrest the absconding Dias,said the official.
