Case registered against PSI on dowry harassment

The Calangute police registered a case of alleged dowry harassment against a police sub inspector for demanding cash from his wife. The case has been registered against PSI Terence Vaz, attached to the police control room at Panaji, under Section 498 (A) of the IPC.

Police said, Vaz’s wife met DGP Kishan Kumar and complained to him that since the last two years her husband has been harassing her and demanding dowry. She said she is related to Vaz and the family had arranged their marriage. The couple also has a son from the marriage.

“We have registered the case and investigations are in progress. We are looking into each and every aspect of the case,” said the Calangute police.

This is not the first time that PSI Vaz is in the midst of a controversy. The PSI came under fire in the Utkarsha Parab kidnapping case, which generated much heat in the Goa assembly. The then opposition leader Manohar Parrikar had demanded the immediate suspension of Vaz, who was then posted at the Valpoi police station, for negligence of duty.
