New Delhi: After facing the ire of the public on social media on the controversial DCP Madhur Verma case, Delhi Police has initiated a vigilance inquiry under the supervision of the special commissioner.
The team is expected to find out facts in the case where inspector Karamvir Malik had accused DCP Madhur Verma of slapping him for stopping his car.
According to the Delhi Police, the fact-finding inquiry will establish truths in the case as cross-complaints were filed.
According to the inspector, Verma's staff who was driving a Punjab-registered SUV on the wrong side during a function, threated him after he stopped the vehicle.
Later, the inspector said, Verma asked him to meet him in Tugalak road police station where he allegedly thrashed him.
Meanwhile, Verma has denied all allegation and claimed that "A departmental action was initiated against Karamvir for misbehaving with two persons.” The DCP also said that to save himself from the action, Karamvir made a frivolous complaint against him.
This is not the first time that Verma is facing allegations of high-handedness.
Earlier, when he was an assistant superintendent of police in Chandigarh, a businessman accused that he thrashed him inside his office.
"The Punjab and Haryana High Court issued notice for March 4 (2009) to ASP (Central) Madhur Verma following a plea by Sudha Pandey seeking a CBI probe and subsequent registration of FIR against the officer and those responsible for allegedly beating Arvind Pandey, a trader and complainant in a graft case against sub-inspector Sanjeev Sharma.
“Making submissions before justice Rajan Gupta, the petitioner's counsel alleged that when Arvind Pandey had gone to ASP Madhur Verma's office on December 26, 2008, the officer not only abused him but he and his guards gave him a thrashing. The petitioner also alleged that the police officer kept on repeating How dare did you (Arvind) prepare a voice CD in my office," a media report said in 2009.
However, he was given a clean chit in the case.
The high court had also issued a notice to Verma in the matter.
The businessman had alleged that on December 26, 2008, he had gone to the ASP Verma's office to complain about the inaction of UT police in its dealing with his property dispute.
The ASP then started beating him up and then allowed his gunmen to rough him up.
"It could be added that the UT police was not interested in filing the FIR, it was only after CBI's intervention that an inquiry was ordered. Besides, Pandey's medical examination was conducted by medical officers after CBI officers persisted," a media report said.
