Absconding constable moves HC for advance bail
The absconding head constable Vaman Naik, against whom an arrest warrant has been issued in the police-pimp-prostitution racket, has reportedly moved the Bombay High Court at Goa challenging the order denying him anticipatory bail.
There was however no official confirmation on this development as Crime Branch officials were not available for comment.
Naik had applied for anticipatory bail fearing arrest after his alleged involvement in the nexus exposed with the deposition of two victims of prostitution.
Naik, another head constable Santosh Vengurlekar and Constable Vijay Gaikwad have been booked for sexually exploiting the two victims one hailing from Mumbai and the other from Jharkhand. Several other beat policemen are also in the process of being probed for their alleged role in the nexus. [H]
