SC refuses to entertain Param Bir Singh’s plea over allegations against Deshmukh

Singh was shunted in connection with the Ambani bomb scare probe and the arrest of police officer Sachin Vaze, accused Deshmukh of running a ‘money collection scheme’ through the police department.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to entertain a plea of former Mumbai Police chief Param Bir Singh seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the alleged corrupt malpractices of state home minister Anil Deshmukh. The top court asked him to approach the High Court in the matter.

Singh’s petition sought a CBI probe against Deshmukh for allegedly running a ‘money collection scheme’ through the police department. It also demanded that his transfer to a low-key post in Maharashtra Police’s Home Guards be stayed.

Singh was shunted in connection with the Ambani bomb scare probe and the arrest of police officer Sachin Vaze. He claimed that he was transsferred to the post ‘immediately’ after he accused the state home minister of corruption in front of Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray, deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar and some other senior leaders.

A two-judge bench, comprising Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and R Subhash Reddy, passed the judgment.
