Mumbai: After the Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to entertain Param Bir Singh’s plea seeking a CBI probe against Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh and asked him to approach the High Court in the matter, Param Bir Singh withdrew his plea.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday allowed former Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh to withdraw his plea seeking direction for a “impartial and fair” CBI probe into alleged corrupt malpractices of Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.
Param Bir Singh’s plea demanded a CBI probe against Anil Deshmukh for allegedly running a ‘money collection scheme’ through
the police department. The plea also sought demanded Anil Deshmukh’s transfer to a low-profile post.
Param Bir Singh was shunted in connection with the Ambani bomb scare probe and the arrest of police officer Sachin Vaze. He claimed that he was transferred to the post immediately after he accused Anil Deshmukh of corruption in front of Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray.
