Former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh on Monday moved the High Court seeking quashing of a case filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) against former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh.
Based on Parambir’s letter, Adv. Jayashree Patil had lodged a complaint with Malabar Hill police. However, the High Court had directed the CBI to conduct a preliminary inquiry into the allegations after realizing that the complaint had not been investigated. A senior police official has leveled serious allegations of corruption against the Home Minister.
Despite the High Court ordering a preliminary inquiry into the allegations made by Parambir against Deshmukh, the state government has alleged that the CBI had also included Sachin Waze in the preliminary information report (FIR) to re-employ him and hand over important cases to him. The state government also filed the petition on Monday and is likely to hear it on Tuesday.
The state government has also challenged the FIR filed against Deshmukh by the CBI in the Waze case. The court had ordered an inquiry into Parambir’s allegations. However, the CBI has included the issue of re-employing Waze and allowing him to handle important cases in the FIR. The government has raised the issue in the petition that the CBI had gone beyond the limits even though the court had asked for a limited inquiry.
