PROPERTY DISPUTE WITH DAUGHTER
Mohini Kamwani, a resident of Sector 4 in Vashi, said that her estranged daughter and son-inlaw had been threatening and harassing her to hand over her flat and money. When she approached the Vashi police in 2010, they only registered just a
non-cognisable (NC) offence.
Her daughter continued harassing and threatening Kamwani. When the police did not register an FIR even after a year, she sat on a hunger strike at Azad Maidan in Mumbai on January
16, 2012. When she failed get a response, she announced that she was going to commit suicide. The Azad Maidan police counselled her and she called off her strike.
On January 25, 2012, the Vashi police arrested both Mohini and Dilip and booked them under section 151 (knowingly joining or continuing in assembly of five or more persons after it has been commanded to disperse) of the Indian Penal Code.
I did not take part in the hunger strike, but the police arrested me. We were sent to judicial custody and spent three days in Kalyan jail. Our mentally challenged sisters stayed home alone then. DILIP KAMWANI, 61, a resident of Vashi We have registered a first information report and will do the investigations. It’s only after that will we think about the arrests of those two former police officers. PRASHANT KHAIRE, deputy commissioner of police (zone 1)
