Police file FIR filed against CMís younger brother and 40 others


Jamshedpur, April 13: The incident of harassment on a young woman related to Chief Minister Raghubar Das at Tuiladungri in Golmuri has snowballed into a major controversy.

Following protest from Sikh community, the police late on Wednesday night registered a case against CM’s younger brother Moolchand Sahu and 40 others, including Sahu’s son and son-in-law for allegedly indulging in assaulting the accused at the Golmuri Police Station lock-up and beating up the women belonging to Sikh community at Tuiladungri.

The police have also registered a counter case on the FIR lodged by the victim woman in the Sahu’s family against about 100 youths for allegedly stone-pelting, and attempted molestation.

The case, which the police have registered against Sahu and 40 others, is under IPC Sections of 147 (assembling armed with weapon), 149 (provocation with ill intention), 323 (assault), 354 (molestation), 374 (breaching of peace, 504 (hurting self-respect), 506 (attack and assault) and 509 (outraging the modesty of women).

OC, Golmuri police station, Arun Kumar Mahatha said they have registered a counter case — one on the FIR lodged by Jasbir Singh, head of the Tuiladungri Gurudwara against Sahu and 40 others and another case was lodged by the victim woman against 100 unidentified youths who had pelted stones at Sahu’s relatives house on Monday night.

Sahu’s daughter had on Saturday night alleged a 30-year-old youth Heera Singh who resides one house away from her at B-Block in Tuiladungri to have been harassing her.

Getting agitated over the incident, Moolchand and his supporters had assaulted Heera on the police station premises. On Monday, the accused was forwarded to judicial custody.

Reacting to Heera’s arrest, about 100 youths of the Sikh-dominated Tuiladungri had started stone-pelting at the house of the harassment victim, leading this time Sahu to retaliate by roughing up a section of Sikh women of that locality. About six persons, including three women had also been picked up by the police who released them all, apparently to make no further disturbance in the locality.

Peeved over the incident , the Sikhs community members of Tuiladungri staged demonstration in front of the office of senior SP, Anoop T Mathew.

The agitated Singh, led by Central Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee president Inderjeet Singh had given Mathew a 48 hours ultimatum to take action against Sahu and his supporters for assaulting Heera. The Sikh protesters had threatened to intensify their agitation in the event of police keeping mum over the issue.
