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)
