Taking note of the incident, Mumbai Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Amitesh Kumar ordered an urgent investigation by the Deputy Commissioner of Police.
“He has been ordered to visit and conduct an inquiry into the incident immediately. The case will be handled appropriately and sternly after the report is received tomorrow,” Mr Kumar said.
The woman, who appeared to be in her mid-20s, claimed that two other vehicles parked there were not picked, but her car was chosen for towing which did not stop even after protests from citizens who warned that something untoward could happen to both the woman and the child.
The policemen believed to be named Shashank Rane, was not wearing his name badge, which is against the rules of the Maharashtra Police.
