Yavatmal:

Police in Yavatmal district of Maharashtra on Tuesday arrested the secretary of a cooperative credit society for allegedly demanding sexual favours from a woman for helping her get a bank loan.

Dadarao Ingole, resident of Talegaon and the secretary of a local cooperative credit society, was booked under IPC sections 354 (A) (sexual harassment) and (D) (stalking), said Darwha Police Station Officer Rita Uikey.

He was later released on bail by a magistrate's court though police sought his custody, she added.

A woman lodged a complaint yesterday that Ingole sought sexual favours from her for helping her get a loan of Rs 5 lakh for dairy business from a cooperative bank, the police officer said.

The woman and her farmer husband had sought Ingole's help for obtaining the loan on the advice of a relative.

The woman also claimed to have recorded the accused's calls on her mobile phone.

Police officer Uikey said the recording will be sent to a forensic science laboratory for examination.

In a similar case, a branch manager of Central Bank of India was arrested in Buldhana district last month when he allegedly sought sexual favours from a farmer's wife to sanction a crop loan.
