Mumbai: Controversial Mumbai policeman ACP Vasant Dhoble believes that he stands vindicated even after a court let off the women whom he detained and branded as 'prostitutes'. Speaking to CNN-IBN, ACP Dhoble said, "The police don't frame the laws. The laws are framed by the legislators. The police's job is to simply implement the laws."
He also said that he was only targeting establishments and not the people. "The patrons who visit such establishments need not worry," ACP Dhoble said.
For months, Dhoble has been on the warpath, making headlines for raiding and assaulting restaurant staff across the city, be it at hip restaurants, small eateries, private parties, or dance bars. At a juice centre in Vile Parle, his weapon of choice was a hockey stick for assaulting the waiters.
Sixty four-year-old Yusuf Bhure, owner of the Mogal Sarai restaurant in Bandra, fell unconscious and partially lost his hearing after Dhoble struck him on the ear and groin while inspecting the restaurant.
The restaurant's papers were in order, but Bhure's health and dignity were left severely bruised. Insult added to injury after he was turned away from the Bandra Police Station, while trying to file an FIR against Dhoble.
