Bhatkal,Aug 29, 2016 : Bhatkal city Police Station Sub-Inspector Revathi has submitted her resignation reportedly in protest against harassment by a senior police official. Revathi is learnt to have tendered her resignation to Circle Inspector Suresh Nayak on August 28.
However the lady SI has not named any officer in her resignation letter but has reportedly stated that she was subject to mental harassment while handling a case.
It may be recalled that Revathi was earlier suspended from service by Bhatkal SP Vamshi Krishna after one Mohsin who had lodged a complaint against six persons for threatening him, complained with the SP that the lady SI was wasting time by seeking compromise rather than registering a complaint.
It is said Revathi had shown interest in ending the case through compromise by summoning both the parties for talks.
However, Revathi had claimed that she did not try for a compromise but had summoned both the parties as part of investigation as the complainant had given a different statement with a senior officer. She also alleged that she was victimised for no fault of her.
The Revathi resignation case comes weeks after Kudligi DySP Anupama Shenoy had quit alleging harassment from seniors.
Now, based on the complaint, two people Saleem and Amjad Kumta have been arrested. A search is on for four others.
