New Delhi: Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh, who is in midst of a huge controversy, has moved the Supreme Court stating that Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh has been interfering in various probe and sought the CBI to immediately conduct an unbiased, uninfluenced, impartial and fair investigation in the various corrupt malpractices carried out by Deshmukh.
Singh appealed to the top court to quash his transfer orders, which he has termed “illegal and arbitrary” and a CBI investigation to be carried out immediately before pieces of evidence are destroyed.
Singh’s plea contended that since February 2021, Deshmukh had been holding meetings at his residence with police officers — including Sachin Vaze of Crime Intelligence Unit, Mumbai and Sanjay Patil, ACP Social Service Branch, Mumbai — bypassing their seniors.
The plea also claimed that Deshmukh had ordered them that he had a target to collect Rs 100 crore every month and directed them to extort money from various establishments and other sources. The plea has made the Maharashtra government, the Ministry of Home Affairs and the CBI as respondents in the case.
