FIR against cops for sexual exploitation


A female victim of sexual trafficking has filed a complaint at crime branch against two policemen attached to Calangute police station for sexual exploitation and extortion of money. An FIR has been registered with crime branch against a head constable and a constable.
Sources in the police department said the girl in her complaint stated that police constables attached to Calangute police station used to demand sexual favours from her and extorted money from her to allow her to conduct her business. Sources also said the girl alleged that the constables were de-facto running the prostitution business.
She said the constables were forcing her to inform them about the new girls entering the prostitution racket so that the policemen could seek sexual gratification from the new entrants, instead of rescuing the girls.
The girl has also said that if an identification parade is conducted she would be able to identify the police constables who used her for sexual exploitation.
Police sources said the girl has been sent to the protective home and crime branch is investigating the case.
Sources added that the girl was earlier rescued by Calangute police and had later made the allegations of sexual exploitation against the police. [TOI]
