Patna: Just days after the state government sacked 175 police personnel, many of them women, after they launched an assault on Patna DSP Mashluddin and allegedly tried to lynch him after he denied leave to a sick recruit resulting in her death, nearly three dozen policewomen in Patna on Thursday filed a complaint before the state Women's Commission accusing the city DSP of misbehavior, exploitation, and sexual harassment, causing much distress and mental agony to them.

Providing details of their ordeal, one policewoman said that the DSP was known for inviting female cop recruits to his chamber promising them special favors if they agreed to his demands.

"If one of us got sick, he would call us in his cabin saying he would do anything for us as long as we would do what he asked us to do. We use to say, "Sir, we will die," but he would tell us that if we did, he would get five guys and have our body disposed of within minutes and replace us with someone else," one complainant told Women's Commission chairperson Dilmani Mishra.

Another cop said that the DSP demanded from them to make videos of the time of the month when they were having period.

The complainants further said that the DSP made vulgar gestures during parades and refused to allow them bathroom breaks unless she did what he asked them to do.

"The situation is so bad that many of my colleagues have either thought of committing suicide or are still considering ending their lives," they said.

Mishra assured them of launching a probe against the DSP so justice could be served to the aggrieved female cops.
