Haryana police school in sex scam.

THE HARYANA Police Academy ( HPA) -- a premier institute imparting training to the state's policemen -- is caught in a controversy after media reports accusing some officers of sexually exploiting two woman constables.

The alleged scandal involves a few IPS officers of the academy situated in Madhuban town in Haryana's Karnal district.

On Tuesday, the Indian National Lok Dal ( INLD), the major opposition party in the state, demanded the Central Bureau of Investigation ( CBI) be allowed to probe the allegations.

It also claimed to have submitted the complaints filed by the victims to the governor. " We have informed him about the malpractices that are going on in the HPA and how woman officers are sexually exploited by senior officers there," a party spokesperson said.

INLD chief and former chief minister Om Parkash Chautala, who met governor Jagannath Pahadia, said he had submitted evidence relating to the " Madhuban sex scandal". " We believe the governor will deal with this issue very seriously and appropriately.

We have submitted copies of written complaints by the woman constables to him. We have also apprised him of the entire issue," Chautala told media outside Haryana Raj Bhawan.

The Haryana police have registered an FIR against the owner of a vernacular paper, Kuldeep Singh Sheoran, reporter Ajay Deep Lather and eight other people, including its printer, for publishing " fabricated scandalous and false facts". The management of over a year- old newspaper published from Rohtak, Hisar and Noida, however, maintained the reports in the paper were based on facts.

The FIR lodged on December 14 by Suman Manjari, superintendent of police, HPA, alleged the newspaper published the reports to defame the image of the academy and scandalise its staff and trainees.

Academy director V. N. Rai said a detailed report on the issue would be sent to the police headquarters, which would be forwarded to the government later.
