Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh on Monday requested for extra time from the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to look earlier than it forward of his summons citing well being causes.
According to Enforcement Directorate (ED), Param Bir Singh has cited well being causes for skipping summons, saying that he’s unwell and is scheduled to endure surgical procedure.
The Enforcement Directorate had summoned the previous Mumbai Police Commissioner to report an announcement in reference to the Rs 100 crore cash laundering case towards ex-Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.
Param Bir Singh, in his letter to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, had alleged that Anil Deshmukh had indulged in “malpractices” and requested suspended Mumbai Police officer Sachin Waze to gather Rs 100 crores each month.
Sachin Waze was arrested in March in reference to the National Investigation Agency’s (NIA) probe into the case of restoration of an explosives-laden SUV close to Mukesh Ambani’s home in Mumbai and the next homicide of Thane businessman Mansukh Hiran.
The case towards the previous Home Minister was registered on May 11. Earlier in April, the CBI had performed raids at 4 premises of Anil Deshmukh after registering an FIR towards him in reference to the case.
An FIR was filed based mostly on Section 7 of the Prevention of Corruption Act (Public servant taking gratification apart from authorized remuneration in respect of an official act) and prison conspiracy (IPC 120 B).
During the searches, the CBI recovered incriminating paperwork and digital gadgets, sources confirmed.
