Retired high court judge to conduct inquiry into allegations against me: Anil Deshmukh | India News – Times of India


NAGPUR: Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh, who reached Nagpur on Sunday, said an inquiry would be conducted into the allegations against him levelled by the ex-Mumbai CP Param Bir Singh by a retired judge of the high court.
Deshmukh, who had flown down to the city to take a review meeting of the Covid surge, also said the truth would come out after the inquiry.
Deshmukh, taking to media, said he had requested the state chief minister Uddhav Thackeray during a recently held cabinet meeting to conduct a probe into the accusations foisted upon him by Singh after the IPS officer was shifted as DG Home guards with Hemant Nagrale replacing him as Mumbai CP.
“Following my request during a cabinet meeting, CM has ordered an inquiry into the allegations of ex-Mumbai CP Singh against me. The inquiry would be conducted by a retired judge of High court to ascertain the truth in such allegations,’ Deshmukh said adding the facts would come to fore.
Singh had blamed Deshmukh for pressurizing senior officers to collect Rs 100 crores for him from bars and such places and also interfered to register an offence in a suicide case among other charges. NCP supremo Sharad Pawar had trashed the charges stating Deshmukh was in home quarantine during the period when Singh had claimed the Home minister having met the officers to demand money. Singh had subsequently filed a case before the high court requesting a probe against Deshmukh.
The home minister too had strongly protested against the allegations by Singh in a press statement asking why the senior officer vented his ire after being removed as Mumbai CP. Deshmukh had also denied all the charges against him as malicious.
