Such incidents were common in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, but now they have started occurring in Mumbai also. The criminal informed police twice in advanced that he is going to attack Sachin Dattatray Naik. Later accused attacked him and police refused to believe Naik’s claim.
The incident took place on September 21, 2014 around 11.40 pm near Samaj Mandir Hall, Amrapali Society, Mulund (West).
28-year-old Sachin Dattatray Naik is a resident of Amrapali Society, Gautam Nagar, Dumping Road, Mulund. He is Mathadi worker. There are two FIRs registered against Sachin Naik in Mulund police station.
Around 10pm Mulund police visited his area and inquired about the attack on Naik. Sachin Naik told them that he was safe. There was no attack on him. Police team told Naik that someone had called the police station and informed that he is going to attack Sachin Naik.
In less than half an hour, a police constable again visited the area and met Naik, informing him that a man called the police station and told that he is going to attack him (Sachin Naik) with a concrete piece. Naik again told that he was safe. Constable suggested Naik to do not roam around in the area and go home as soon as possible.
“Two times police informed me that I was attacked with concrete piece. I laughed. I think that someone was joking with police,” said Naik.
As the police constable left, Naik received a call (from mobile number 9920515656) on his mobile. The caller introduced himself as Rupesh Parkar. He threatened Naik saying, “leave Mulund area or I will kill you.”
Around 11.30 pm more than 25 men including Rupesh Parkar, Rajesh Parkar and Vinod Jadhav appeared there. Few were on motorbikes. They badly slapped, thrashed and attacked Naik with a concrete piece.
Naik phoned on police helpline number 100. But policeman told him that do not make a joke. Policeman told that he had prior received call that you were attacked. Later Naik called to Mulund police station. The Mulund police also abused him saying do not fool around. You are fooling. Mulund police staff two times visited you but you had told that nothing happened.
Naik went to Mulund police station with his mother. Police sent him for medical at civic run hospital. Shockingly, accused came to hospital and threatened Naik with dire consequences. Police took Naik in police station and put him in the lock up saying he can’t go home as his life is in danger.
According to Naik he was badly attacked. He lost two teeth and got 17 stitches but the sub-inspector Pratiksha Bhagat was registering FIR with minor (323) section. Pratiksha Bhagat also told him that a cross FIR will be register against him. Due to election she was searching him to book under section 151.
“Main to tumhe election ki vajah se 151 me book karne ke liye khoj hi rahi thi. Tumhare khilaf bhi FIR (cross) darj hoga. Medical report mujhe padhna nahin aata. Isliye 323 ka hi FIR lungi,” Pratiksha Bhagat said to Naik.
On second day Naik met Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Vinay Rathod. On instruction of Rathod, Pratiksha Bhagat registered FIR (copy available with ABI) under sections 326, 507 and 34 of IPC against Rupesh Parkar, Rajesh Parkar, Vinod Jadhav, Bharat Sonavane and others.
“FIR should be registered under section 307 of IPC against the accused. I will knock the court doors,” said Naik.
despite repeated attempts sub-inspector Pratiksha Bhagat is not available for comment.
