Panaji: Three Income Tax inspectors attached to office in Goa’s Panaji have been booked for allegedly sexually assaulting and threatening a female subordinate staff, police said on Saturday May 7.

Police Inspector Nikhil Palyekar told IANS that Income Tax Inspectors Manindar Attri from Delhi, Aditya Verma from Rajasthan and Deepak Kumar from Bangaluru were booked in this connection on Thursday.

“All the three accused persons have been booked under section 354 (A), 354 (D), 509 and 506 (II) rw 34 of IPC. We are investigating the case further.” Palyekar said, adding that the accused are yet to be arrested.
