After the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) registered a FIR against the former Maharashtra Home Minister in relation to the 'extortion' charges levelled by Param Bir Singh, Anil Deshmukh has now filed a plea before the Bombay High Court (HC). In the plea filed in Bombay HC, Anil Deshmukh seels quashing of the FIR registered against him by CBI.
CBI registers FIR against Anil Deshmukh
Anil Deshmukh had been named in the CBI's FIR along with unknown persons after searches were being carried out at the NCP leader's residence on April 24 morning. Anil Deshmukh was earlier summoned by the CBI on April 14 and was grilled by two SP-rank officers prior to which two of his aides were questioned by the central agency in relation to the corruption allegations levelled on him by his former reportee Param Bir Singh in his 8-page letter to the Maharashtra CM and Governor.
Earlier, the CBI recorded statements of e-Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh and suspended API Sachin Vaze and was also granted access to the suspended API's 'extortion diary'. As per sources, Param Bir Singh reiterated his 'extortion' charge against former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh while he recorded his statement with the CBI on April 20. Sources added that Param Bir Singh also submitted a few documents and the details of key meetings. Previously, a team of CBI officers had also recorded complainant Jaishri Patil's statement. Meanwhile, former encounter specialist Pradeep Sharma was also summoned by the NIA on April 20 after suspended API Sachin Vaze allegedly named him in his confession. The former cop & Shiv Sena leader was questioned for over seven-and-a-half fours on Wednesday following which he was once again summoned on April 20. SC upholds HC order for CBI enquiry
The Supreme Court had refused to provide relief to former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh on April 20 and maintained that it would not interfere with the High Court order directing a CBI probe. Anil Deshmukh had filed a plea at the apex court challenging the Bombay HC's order while also questioning the credentials of the central agency to probe into the allegations levelled against him by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh. The Supreme Court bench comprising of Justices SK Kaul and Hemant Gupta heard the matter.
