A woman officer, who was posted on deputation at a Special Branch unit of Mumbai Police, was dismissed for levelling false allegations against her colleagues and seniors.
State Director General of Police (DGP) Pravin Dixit has dismissed Sujata Warane, who was posted on deputation at K unit of Special Branch (SB-1) here, from service on November 11, DCP (Detection) Dhananjay Kulkarni said.
The officer was designated as chief intelligence officer in SB-1 that deals with dispatch of files and applications from the branch, Kulkarni said.
“There were several complaints against the officer by her colleagues and seniors that she behaved rudely, insulted and abused them on various occasions,” the officer said.
A departmental inquiry was initiated against Warane, which found that in one such incident which took place between February 2010 and October, 2011 period, the officer had abused and insulted one of her senior officers Chandrakant Bhosale and an inspector by passing comments referring to their caste, Kulkarni said.
It was also found that Warane in her personal police diary had falsely written that she was abused by her colleagues, he said.
After the inquiry, Warane was dismissed for behaviour against the disciplined force, the DCP said.
