Thursday April 18, 2013 07:44:43 PM, Agencies

Mumbai: A Mumbai based activist on Thursday threatened to go to fast-unto-death Jivajirao Jadhav, the Senior Police Inspector of Mulund police station was not suspended.


Rakesh Shetty, national president of INTUC, and a political and social activist, had earlier on February 28 called on Home Minister RR Patil and demanded the suspension of Jadhav.


Shetty claimed that Police Ispector Jadhav is engaged in corrupt practices.

He also claimed that he was booked in a false and fabricated extortion case at the behest of Jadhav. He was later granted bail by Magistrate's court.

Shetty alleged that Jadhav is running an extortion racket – and demanding money from the members of the Mulund Jewellers' Association.

“As many as 113 jewellery shops in the Mulund area would shut down their shops when I undertake the fast-unto-death,” he said.

He said that Devilalji Kothari, senior citizen was beaten up by Jadhav and six other policemen – when he denied Rs five lakh to the cops.

Association's President Bhagwati Jain also took up the issue – and approached local MLAs and MP – however, no one wants to touch the police officer because of his nexus.

Thereafter, they approached Patil – following which he ordered an inquiry by Joint Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Sadanand Date.


Jadhav was asked to proceed on leave for 8 days and Deputy Commissioner of Police Sanjay Sintre, who recorded the statements of the jewellers.

On March 6, a report was forwarded – but Jadhav managed to suppress the report.


However, on April 4, through an RTI, he secured the report which says that Jadhav should be transferred to non-executive post and a departmental inquiry be ordered.

On April 9, Shetty met Patil again and showed him the report. The Home Minister assured to do the needful, however, so far Jadhav remains in the same post.
