NEW DELHI: A Delhi court on Saturday directed the Station House Officer of the Nand Nagri police station to register an FIR against a head constable and three others for allegedly robbing, assaulting and criminally intimidating a woman tenant to implicate her and her family in cases in order to force them out of a rented house.

Metropolitan Magistrate Amit Kumar ordered the registration of the FIR against the three -- Head Constable Chaman Lal, Pushpa, Geeta and Suresh -- on a complaint by Sudha, who along with her husband and three children stayed at the head constable's house as a tenant.

The woman approached the court when the local police refused to act on her complaint submitted six months ago.

Pulling up the local police for not registering an FIR, the Metropolitan Magistrate directed them to file a report in the court by June 1, explaining why they did not act on the woman's complaint.

The head constable and his three accomplishes allegedly continued to harass the woman and her family even after she vacated his house and shifted to another in the same area.
