The FIR will be registered for offences under relevant sections of the Schedule Caste and Schedule Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, and sections 420 (cheating), 500 (defamation), 504 (insult), 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC.

Pune: The District and Sessions Court has directed Pune police ACP (zone III), Pimpri, to register an FIR against Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) In-charge Medical Officer Dr K Anil Roy and Dr Hemant Chikhlikar, for allegedly cheating and defaming Dr Shankar Jadhav. 

The FIR will be registered for offences under relevant sections of the Schedule Caste and Schedule Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, and sections 420 (cheating), 500 (defamation), 504 (insult), 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code. 

According to the case details, Roy and Chikhlikar had defamed Jadhav by circulating false information written on letterhead of a bogus organisation. Jadhav worked as a physician with PCMC’s Bhosari hospital. He was to be promoted as deputy superintendent of PCMC-run YCM hospital but because of the false details written on the letterhead, which was given to the PCMC commissioner in December 2015, Jadhav lost the post. The letterhead was also sent to all PCMC officers using official email id. 

Jadhav approached the police but they didn’t register his case. Later, he filed a complaint in the district court which ordered the police to register the case, do investigation and file report within 90 days.
