Bombay HC orders preliminary probe into charges against Anil Deshmukh
Bombay HC ordered CBI to initiate a preliminary inquiry within 15 days on the corruption charges against Anil Deshmukh
New Delhi: After the allegations of former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh, once again, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh's trouble seems to be increasing.
On the petition of Dr. Jayashree Patil, the Bombay HC has asked the CBI to initiate a preliminary inquiry within 15 days on the corruption charges leveled against Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh by Param Bir Singh.
Bombay High Court orders CBI Probe:
Explain that while appealing to the Bombay High Court on behalf of the petitioner, Dr. Jayashree Patil, it was said that the allegations of former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh should be investigated objectively.
While hearing the case, Bombay High Court said, because Anil Deshmukh is the Home Minister, the police will not be able to conduct a fair inquiry into the matter. In such a case, the investigation of this case is handed over to the CBI.
Param Bir Singh letter controversy:
A division bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Dutta and Justice Girish Kulkarni said that this is an extraordinary and unprecedented case, which should be investigated independently. The bench directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to complete the preliminary inquiry within 15 days and decide on further action. The bench was hearing three PILs. Among these, one petition was filed by Singh himself, while the second petition was filed by city lawyer Jayashree Patil and third teacher Mohan Bhide, who requested to take different steps. The bench disposed of the three petitions.
Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh has claimed that Anil Deshmukh had given a target of Rs 100 crore to Sachin Waje. Param Bir Singh has written in his letter that in order to meet the target of 100 crore rupees, bars, pubs and restaurants in Mumbai were asked to collect.
