On Tuesday, March 30, the Bombay High Court informed that it would hear on Wednesday the PIL filed by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh urging for a CBI probe against Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, who he claimed asked police officer Sachin Vaze to collect INR 100 crores from bars and restaurants.

According to reports, the Supreme Court bench led by Justice Kaul and Justice Subhash Reddy last Wednesday directed former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh to approach the Bombay High Court under Article 226 to seek a CBI probe into the alleged malpractices of Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.

Moreover, in a petition filed in Bombay High Court, Singh alleged that Anil Deshmukh demanded money for police appointments and transfers and that he frequently interfered in the investigation. He further cited the report of State Intelligence Commissioner Rashmi Shukla, the target given to suspended officers Sachin Waze and Sanjay Patil to recover INR 100 crores a month, as well as the case of Dadra-Nagar Haveli MP Mohan Delkar's suicide case.

Days after Param Bir Singh’s transfer, in an 8-page letter, addressed to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, Singh refuted Anil Deshmukh's remarks that his appointment out of the Mumbai CP's office and as Home Guards Commandant-General was due to serious lapses in the Antilia bomb scare case further alleging money laundering charges.

However, Deshmukh had earlier rejected these claims stating that he will file a defamation case against the former Police Commissioner. On the other hand, CM Thackeray is yet to speak on the matter.
