On the court’s order, a CBI team will reach Mumbai on Tuesday to start the process of preliminary investigation against Deshmukh.
Anil Deshmukh reached Supreme Court to demand cancellation of CBI inquiry order.
The Maharashtra government and Anil Deshmukh have filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking cancellation of the order of the CBI probe on the allegations of former Mumbai police commissioner Parambir Singh. It has been said in the petition that the Central Government is making political use of CBI. Two important questions have been raised in the petitions of both the state government and Anil Deshmukh.
The first is that without hearing Anil Deshmukh, the Bombay High Court ordered a CBI inquiry. No order can be ordered unilaterally. Second is that the CBI itself is in the circle of questions. The central government is making political use of CBI. An interim director is overseeing the work of CBI. In such a situation, what is the rationale for giving investigation to CBI? Does the High Court not trust the state government’s investigation? The petition also states that Anil Deshmukh has resigned from his post. There is no reason that they will be able to interfere in any investigation of the state government.
It has been said in the petition that giving investigation to the CBI is like abolishing the authority of the state government. Along with the petition, an application has also been made for early hearing of the case. Earlier, the High Court had ordered the CBI to conduct a preliminary inquiry into the corruption allegations against Home Minister Anil Deshmukh by Paramvir Singh.
The team will reach Mumbai for investigation
On the court’s order, a CBI team will reach Mumbai on Tuesday to start the process of preliminary investigation against Deshmukh. Officials said the agency usually waits for a formal order before taking action in such cases and seeks legal opinion, but the High Court has given only 15 days for initial investigation, so the CBI has moved swiftly Is raised. The CBI team will meet with lawyers to collect orders, attached complaints and other necessary documents.
Bombay High Court had said this
A bench of the Bombay High Court Chief Justice Dipankar Dutt and Justice Girish Kulkarni said that it was an “extraordinary” and “unprecedented” case that should be independently examined. In its 52-page judgment, the bench said that Singh’s allegations against Deshmukh put the citizens’ trust in the state police at stake. The court said that such allegations made against the state Home Minister by a serving police officer cannot be allowed to remain without investigation. Significantly, Singh had accused Anil Deshmukh of recovery, after which the Bombay High Court ordered the CBI to investigate the allegations. After this incident, Deshmukh resigned from the post.
