Panchkula, August 22
Police have arrested controversial Haryana Inspector General (IG) Hemant Kalson for allegedly assaulting two women after trespassing into their houses at Pinjore in this district on Friday evening.

Earlier, he was booked as two FIRs were registered against him. He will be produced in a court. The two incidents took place at Rattpur Colony of Pinjore town.

While the first FIR was registered against Kalson under Sections 323 and 452 of the IPC, the second was lodged under Sections 323, 452, 509 and 510 of the IPC.

In the first FIR, the woman complainant alleged that Kalson forcibly entered her house on Friday evening and started beating up her daughter while she herself was taking a bath. Upon hearing the noises, she intervened and saved her daughter, she said.

She told the police that Kalson bragged that he was (CM ML) Khattar's man; hence, nobody could touch him. The complainant said she also made a video of the incident.

In the second case, a male complainant alleged that Kalson knocked at his door at around 9.30 pm. He alleged that when his wife answered the door, Kalson, who was in an inebriated state, pushed her away and hurled abuses at her. When he intervened, Kalson slapped and kicked him besides threatening to shoot him, he claimed.

The 55-year-old police officer, currently IG, Home Guards, Panchkula, has been in controversy in the past too.
