    8 cops under scanner for party with eunuchs
    India - 31 march 2011

    MUMBAI: All is not well with the Dahisar police station.

    After assistant commissioner of police Babu Gaikwad committed suicide and senior inspector Purshuram Kakad was transferred to a side posting, at least eight cops, including a senior inspector, have come under the scanner for organizing a party where eunuchs were called to provide "entertainment".

    An assistant sub-inspector attached to the Dahisar police station, S Puse, has filed a complaint with senior officers alleging that a senior inspector had organized a get-together at Shingate Quarry in Dahisar on February 4 where eunuchs performed to entertain the cops.

    "Eunuchs were called to the party and asked to dance to a few songs played on the laptop of one of the policemen. The party went on till late in the night,'' Puse has alleged. Three eunuchs had danced at the party, which, said sources, was attended by two officers and six constables.

    Assistant commissioner of police (Dahisar division) Sunil Deshmukh has been asked to probe Puse's allegations. Deshmukh confirmed that an investigation has been launched, but refused to divulge further. , saying he was not authorized to speak to media. Senior officials, too, remained tight-lipped. A senior official told TOI, on the condition of anonymity, "Prima facie, it appears that Puse has made the allegations against the senior inspector because of a professional grouse."

    When contacted, Puse refused to comment., saying he is not keeping well and that the inquiry was underway.

    "Deshmukh had summoned the eight policemen to record their statements and they admitted to the eunuchs' presence at the party. But they refused to give their statements in writing. Police are now looking for the eunuchs to verify the facts," said a source.
