Policemen Escorting D-Company Gangster Who Took Auditions at Court Likely to Face Action

Mumbai, Maharashtra:  A month after gangster Mustafa Dossa reportedly held auditions of models inside the court premises in Mumbai, a report on the incident has been submitted to Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria.

The report has enough material to suggest firm disciplinary action against erring policemen, say police sources.

The gangster interviewed eight women for a modelling job with a Dubai-based jewellery shop while he was inside the Sessions Court. Dossa is facing trial in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case and is a close aide of Dawood Ibrahim.

Mumbai police spokesperson Dhananjay Kulkarni told NDTV, "There was negligence of duty by the police in the escort team of the accused, while producing him in the court. The crime branch has investigated on this. We have reported this matter to the Commissioner of Police and there can be disciplinary actions taken against them".

Sources say the gangster had shortlisted three models and paid them a signing amount, but one of them was later robbed by an aide of Dossa, leading to the revelation of the incident. A complaint was registered at Shivaji Park police station and three persons have been arrested so far.

The incident led to criticism of the police, "Police should not take any risks while escorting a hardened criminal like him. The fact the models were paraded shows how easy access there is to him and this is dangerous to society, as someone may attempt to eliminate him or he may try to escape," retired IPS officer Sudhakar Suradkar,  a former Inspector General of Police, had told NDTV.

Dossa has been in jail since 2003. He had attacked gangster Abu Salem with a spoon inside the city's Arthur Road jail in 2010.
