NAGPUR: Municipal commissioner Radhakrishnan B has given nod to file a charge sheet against controversial medical officer of Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) Dr Pravin Gantawar. The decision was taken on March 10 after DCP (detection) crime branch, Nagpur police, sought NMC permission to file the charge sheet.
Now, the GAD has submitted a proposal just for information to the NMC House which will be meeting on Friday (March 19).
In 2020, Dr Gantawar was made a co-accused in two different cases, including the sensational honeytrap case, by the crime branch. Offences had been registered against him at Tehsil and Mankapur police stations.
TOI had reported about the honeytrap case after an audio clip had gone viral where Dr Gantawar’s alleged aide Sahil Sayyed and another were heard conspiring to honeytrap two leading BJP leaders. The people’s representatives had earlier raised a voice against alleged malpractices by Dr Gantawar.
Tehsil police had registered an offence against Sayyed, his aide and also named Dr Gantawar as co-accused. Mankapur police too had made him an accused where Sayyed and his gang were booked for creating a ruckus at a private hospital.
