PIL seeking probe into corruption charges against Mah Minister Anil Deshmukh, ex-Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh filed in Bombay HC


Mumbai, Mar 23 (ILNS) A petition was filed in the Bombay High Court, seeking investigation by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) or any other independent agency into the allegations of malpractices against Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh and former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh.

The petition, filed by Mumbai-based lawyer Dr Jaishri Laxmanrao Patil, alleged that Deshmukh is not trustworthy to hold the position of the Home Minister, as was evident from the material that has come to light, showing that he was abusing his powers by calling and instructing officers to extort money from common citizens and business persons.

The plea placed reliance upon a letter written by Singh to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, informing him that Deshmukh used to frequently interfere with police investigations and repeatedly called officers and gave them instructions on the course of action to be followed by them, while conducting investigation.

The letter also stated that Mumbai Police officer Sachin Waze was allegedly asked by Deshmukh to collect around Rs 2-3 lakh from about 1,750 bars, restaurants and similar establishments in Mumbai, to ensure a monthly collection of Rs 40-50 crore.

Dr Patil stated in her plea that even Singh also did not take cognisance of the matter by registering an FIR against Deshmukh. ILNS/SNG/RJ
