Two police constables, including a woman, have been accused of looking the other way when their colleague sexually abused a victim of flesh trade.
Constable Vishwavijay Digambar Parab of Mapusa police station molested the 21-year-old girl, who had escaped from a prostitution racket, on August 11. Parab was later suspended from service and arrested.
A high-powered committee, which looks into rehabilitation of victims of flesh trade, has now asked Goa State Women's Commission (GSWC) to conduct an inquiry into the role of two other constables who were present at that time.
Committee members Auda Viegas and Arun Pandey have written to GSWC in this regard. "The girl was molested in the police jeep, right in front of the woman constable, and later outside the police lock-up," the letter says.
According to the girl, she went to Mapusa police station after escaping from a prostitution hub.
