A woman has filed a case at police headquarters alleging she was sexually abused last Thursday by a group of people, including a chief inspector.
Sub-Inspector Ahmed Shiyam confirmed the case had been filed and that police were now investigating the matter.
“The person accused denies the charges,” he said. “She alleged there was also a police chief inspector included in the group she claimed had sexually abused her.”
He declined to give further information on the case, saying police would disclose more information once the investigation was concluded.
A close friend of the alleged victim told Minivan News the incident occurred near Seahouse restaurant in Henveiru.
“She would not be older than 22 years, she was friends with the police inspector,’’ he said. “According to what she told me, she was partying with a group of four police officers, including a senior inspector, and they were all drunk.’’
He alleged that the incident occurred inside a police car.
“She said they threw her onto the street after sexually abusing her,’’ he said.
Meanwhile, local newspaper Haveeru reported that a group of people had burned the motorbike of the police inspector in an arson attack.
