Women Inspector extorts 12.2 Lakhs from 2 doctors by threatening them to book in POCSO, Suspended

Chennai : The Tambaram police Commissioner suspended the Guduvanchery all-women police station Inspector Magidha Anna Christie who allegedly received a bribe of 12.2 lakhs from two doctors, for performing an D & C procedure on a minor girl, after threatening them with POCSO act. A few days ago the Guduvanchery all-women police on the complaint of the parents of a 17-year-old girl arrested Ranjith (27) who was in a relationship with the 17-year-old girl and took her to his house in Tirusulam and were staying together for a few days. The police rescued the girl and she was handed over to their parents.

A few days later, the victim’s mother met police again and claimed that two doctors, a government doctor who runs a private clinic and a private doctor, had allegedly performed a dilation and curettage (D&C) procedure on her daughter without informing her and sought police action. 
A senior police officer investigating the case said, “Acting on the complaint, Magidha visited the doctors for an inquiry. She then allegedly threatened them. She said that since it was illegal to perform a D&C procedure on a minor girl without informing her parents, she would leak the information to the press and tarnish their reputation if they did not pay her money. Even though both doctors denied performing the procedure, they paid a total of Rs 12,20,000 to Magidha due to her threats. The private doctor paid Rs 2,20,000 while the other doctor paid her Rs 10 lakh.”

However, based on intelligence input about the activities of the woman inspector Tambaram police commissioner Amal Raj ordered an inquiry.  A few days later, the doctors also lodged a complaint to senior police officers about the incident. During the inquiry, Inspector Mahitha accepted the crime and agreed to return the money fully to the doctors which lead to her suspension with immediate effect.
