Former Maharashtra residence minister Anil Deshmukh on Tuesday alleged a “very suspicious” function of ex-Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh within the case associated to the putting of an explosives-laden SUV close to Mukesh Ambani’s residence in Mumbai.
The NCP chief mentioned Singh had made false corruption allegations towards him out of revenge which prompted him to maneuver the Bombay Excessive Courtroom for justice.
Mr Deshmukh mentioned officers from the police division and some businessmen have levelled allegations of extortion and corruption towards Mr Singh, who’s now Director Basic of Maharashtra Dwelling Guard.
“The CBI has filed a case towards me based mostly on false allegations made by Param Bir Singh. Therefore, I’ve approached the Excessive Courtroom looking for justice,” Mr Deshmukh informed reporters on the Nagpur airport.
“New allegations of corruption towards Param Bir Singh are actually surfacing in newspapers and TV channels every day. Many issues have come out that make the function of suspended cop Sachin Waze and Param Bir Singh within the case of putting gelatin sticks-laden SUV within the neighborhood of Mukesh Ambani’s residence and the homicide of (Thane businessman) Mansukh Hiran very suspicious. I really feel the NIA will even probe his (Singh’s) suspicious function within the case,” Mr Deshmukh mentioned.
Waze, an accused within the SUV-Hiran homicide case, and Mr Singh had made “critical errors” which had been unpardonable, the previous minister mentioned with out elaborating.
“When the NIA began investigating the matter (SUV-Hiran homicide case), to keep away from any hindrance I had transferred Singh from the submit of Mumbai police commissioner. As a revenge for his switch, Singh made false allegations towards me,” Mr Deshmukh claimed.
The NCP chief mentioned his decades-long political profession has been blemish-free.
“In my 30 years of political profession, there has not been a single accusation towards me. The CBI has filed a case towards me based mostly on false allegations made by Param Bir Singh,” he mentioned.
Mr Deshmukh resigned in early April after the excessive courtroom ordered a CBI probe towards him into allegations of corruption and misconduct levelled by Mr Singh.
