A vacation bench headed by Justice Hemant Gupta told Parambir Singh, “You are part of Maharashtra IPS cadre. You have served the state for 30 years. Now you can’t say that you want your inquiries out of state. You should not doubt your police force. The bench has said that now you do not have faith in your state. A shocking allegation. The bench said, ‘Those whose houses are of glass do not throw stones at the houses of others.’ The bench said that this petition cannot be entertained. Seeing the stand of the top court, Singh’s lawyer Mahesh Jethmalani withdrew the petition.
Increasing pressure not to withdraw complaint against Deshmukh
Parambir Singh had said in his petition that a conspiracy was being hatched against him ever since he alleged that the then Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had given a target of extortion of Rs 100 crore monthly. He had alleged that he would continue to be implicated till he withdrew his complaint against Deshmukh. Singh had requested that the investigation initiated against him be handed over to the CBI.
It is worth noting that the CBI is investigating against former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, surrounded by allegations of recovery of 100 crores. Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh had accused Deshmukh of giving a target of recovery, after which there was a political ruckus in the state. Due to pressure from the opposition, Anil Deshmukh had to resign from the post of Home Minister.
CBI investigation continues on the order of High Court
After that Parambir Singh filed a petition against Anil Deshmukh in the High Court and demanded investigation. The CBI started the investigation on the orders of the High Court. The Maharashtra government and Anil Deshmukh approached the Supreme Court against this investigation. At the same time, the Supreme Court rejected the application of the Maharashtra government and its former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh. Both had challenged the Bombay High Court order ordering a CBI probe into the allegations of recovery of Rs 100 crore.
