New Delhi: The Supreme Court’s new bench will hear a fresh plea filed by ex-Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh seeking transfer of all inquiries ordered against him outside Maharashtra.

Singh’s plea taken up by a bench comprising Justices Vineet Saran and BR Gavai on Tuesday. Immediately, Justice Saran flagged an issue. “Brother (Justice Gavai) has some difficulty in taking up this matter. We will just say place it before another bench,” Justice Saran was quoted saying to senior advocate Puneet Bali by news agency IANS. “I can’t hear this matter,” Justice Gavai added.

Without going into the merits of the case, the bench said, “List before another bench in which one of us is not a party.” Justice Gavai did not cite any reason for not hearing the matter.

Bali had contended in his brief arguments that probe against his client is a witch-hunt and also in complete transgression of the top court as well as the Bombay High Court orders.

Earlier, Singh had accused then Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh of following corrupt practices in posting or transfers in police in addition with Rs 100 crore extortion from various establishments per month.
