According to reports, the victim officer has been posted in Kutch for last 18 months.

Barot, according to complaint, would send “improper” messages on WhatsApp while demanding sexual favours, but she refused.
The SP once allegedly called her to a hotel in Gandhidham on the pretext of work, but sexually assaulted her.
