National Desk: Former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh arrived at DRDO guest house in Santacruz. Officials said that he has been called by the agency for questioning in connection with corruption charges leveled against Deshmukh by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh and suspended police officer Sachin Waje. The Home Minister resigned from his post after the High Court ordered a CBI inquiry on the recovery related allegations.
The notice was issued on Monday, with the
Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) notifying Deshmukh of his involvement in the investigation on Monday morning. The CBI is conducting a preliminary inquiry into the allegations leveled against Singh by Deshmukh. The allegations were made by Singh after he was removed from the post of Commissioner of Mumbai Police. He said the allegations were allegedly made by Milan Waje, who is in the custody of the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
Several chargesheets on Deshmukh
said that Deshmukh had allegedly asked Waje to collect Rs 100 crore from Mumbai's bars and restaurants. The Bombay High Court last week directed the CBI to conduct a preliminary inquiry into the allegations leveled against Singh by Deshmukh.
The investigation in the SUV case is also
significant, that Assistant Police Inspector Waje is under investigation in the case of getting SUV with explosives outside the house of industrialist Mukesh Ambani in South Mumbai. A day earlier, two of his colleagues Sanjeev Palande and Kundan recorded their statements before the agency, officials said. The NIA is investigating the SUV case.
