Ex-Mumbai Top Cop Files Supreme Court Plea Against Maharashtra Minister

Mumbai/ New Delhi:

Former Mumbai police chief Param Bir Singh has approached the Supreme Court, seeking an investigation into alleged corruption by Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh. He has also challenged his transfer to Home Guards, ordered by the Maharashtra government last week over lapses into the Mukesh Ambani bomb scare case.

Mr Singh was the one to level corruption allegations last week in a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. In his letter, he said the minister had started an extortion racket with several officers, including Sachin Waze, who has been arrested in the Mukesh Ambani explosives case.  

The officers were set a target of Rs 100 crore a month and told to collect the money from pubs and restaurants, he wrote.
Mr Singh’s appeal came as Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar questioned his motives.

The officer, Mr Pawar has said, made his allegations after being moved out of the Mumbai top post and into the Home Guards following lapses in the Mukesh Ambani security scare probe.

Today, Mr Pawar said the officer was just trying to divert attention from the investigation into the Mukesh Ambani security scare case.
