CBI probe against Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, Bombay High Court verdict

Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh accused Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh of recovering Rs 100 crore per month from Mumbai establishments through suspended police officer Sachin Waje. Now the Bombay High Court has asked the CBI to conduct a preliminary inquiry into the matter. He also made allegations of rigging in transfer-posting.

Bombay High Court said that The CBI may close its preliminary inquiry within 15 days. After preliminary investigation, it will be up to the CBI director to take further action in this matter. The court also said that after the decision of the government to form a committee, it seems that there is no need for judicial intervention in it. The Bombay High Court said:

“We know that Anil Deshmukh is the home minister of the state, who is above the police. There should be an independent investigation. The investigation should be done according to the law. “

The Bombay High Court, however, said that the CBI does not have to immediately file an FIR in the case. This is said because Maharashtra government has already decided to set up a high-level committee to investigate.

Earlier, the Bombay HC had reprimanded former police commissioner Parambir Singh, saying that if he is not registering an FIR despite being a police officer, it means that he has failed in the discharge of his duties. The court asked Parambir Singh why he did not register an FIR even though it was his duty. The court had said that just sending a letter to the CM does not happen, for which a reply can be sought from Parambir Singh.
