Mumbai girl, who had accused DIG of sexual harassment goes missing

A minor girl in Mumbai has gone missing since Monday night, the family members of the girl have said. The 17-year-old girl had earlier accused the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Nishikant More of sexual harassment. According to the family members of the girl, she has also left a suicide note at home. 

"My girl went to college on Monday. She said somebody met her there and took her number as well. When she came back from college, she directly went to sleep and had gone missing from the next morning," father of the girl, said on Thursday.

He said that his daughter left behind a suicide note, "in which she said that she is tired of the DIG and wants to die."

"Police said that she was caught on CCTV camera leaving the house at around 11:30 pm voluntarily. If the police want, they can find my daughter in no time. But they are not working. they are not even taking action against the DIG because he is a high-level officer," he alleged

He also urged the chief minister to take cognizance of the matter.

"We don't have any security either. Anyone can hurt us. Our family is very uncertain about our future. We don't know what will happen tomorrow," he added.

Facing molestation charges, DIG More was suspended on Thursday.

A case was registered against him on December 26 last month under relevant sections. The alleged molestation took place at the birthday party of the minor girl.
