AN INDIAN Navy captain is learnt to have frequently described a woman security guard as “mast maal”. He is also said to have ordered she be brought in civilian dress. The security officer refused to obey his order and now an inquiry is on in the matter. The accused captain was identified as S. S. Sandhu, DGM (L&W). The incident took place on September 10, 2016, at NCH Colony, Kanjur Marg (West), Mumbai.
The day was Saturday. Captain S. S. Sandhu visited the Naval dockyard colony around 2pm. First he went to the administration office and later to the security office. Sitting at the security office, first he ordered the CCTV camera to be switched off. The security officer followed his order and stopped the functioning of the CCTV camera. Sandhu also asked security officer to arrange for a drink. The security officer refused, as it was against the Navy rule to drink alcohol in the security office.
After the security officer refused to arrange the alcohol, market in-charge Kamal alias K.J. Mishra arranged the same. They drank the alcohol sitting in the car. After drinking Sandhu again went to the security office and ordered for non-vegetarian food and dal-rice. A woman security guard went to serve him inside the office. After finishing the lunch Sandhu called the security officer. Appreciating him he said, “Tumne bahut badhiya maal rakha hua hai. Isse civil dress me mere saath chalne ko bolo.” The shocked security officer refused to do so. Angry Sandhu told him that it is necessary for him. “Apka kaam thik nahi. Birendra badhiya intezaam karta hain. Mujhe sex lagta hi hai. Agli baar yaad rakhna,” he said.
Birendra Kumar is Administrative officer and security incharge of Naval Civilian Housing Colony, Ulhasnagar.
Sandhu’s demand matter very soon spread among the colony residents. The matter also reached ASD Sanjeev Kale. Kale asked GM HR Vivek Agrawal to conduct an inquiry. Sources said an inquiry was on and a few security officers’ statements had been recorded. But there is little chance of the victim getting justice as Sandhu and investigation officer Vivek Agrawal are close to each other. There is more chance that Sandhu will get clean chit. Sandhu too claims that 100 percent there will be nothing against him.
A similar incident happened a few months back when the then security in charge of NCH Colony, Mr. Chiman Lamba was accused for doing objectionable things in his office with a lady security guard. The matter was hushed up quickly. After a few days, Security Incharge Mr. Chiman Lamba was demoted to Assistant Security Incharge.
ABI (Akela Bureau of Investigation) tried to reach admiral, GM HR Vivek Agrawal and public relations officer (PRO) Rahul Sinha but failed as they did not respond to calls and text messages. PRO Sinha did not respond to even an email. S S Sandhu replied to ABI’s text message and said, “This is not true.” On second day Sandhu called and presented himself as a most innocent person. He indirectly threatened legal action against ABI.
