Mumbai (10.08.2022): Mumbai Police have filed an application before the Esplanade court that a proposal has been sent to the Central Government for its approval to file a charge sheet against senior Rashmi Shukla (IPS: 1988: MH). The Police in their application stated that a sanction under section 197 of the Criminal Procedure Code has been sought.
The application comes nearly three months after the Colaba Police in April filed a charge sheet naming Shukla, of which the magistrate court is yet to take cognizance. As per provisions of section 197 of CrPc, a sanction is required from the competent authority to prosecute public servants if an act they are alleged to have committed directly concerns their official duty.
