New Delhi: After Former Mumbai Police commissioner Param Bir Singh alleged that Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh asked Sachin Waze to collect Rs 100 cr every month.
Now, Anil Deshmukh has released a statement and has called the allegations as ‘absolutely false and baseless.’
“Ex Mumbai CP, Mr. Parambir Singh’s allegations on me are absolutely false and baseless. He has made these allegations as a part of a conspiracy to save himself and to malign the image of Maha Vlkas Aghadi and me,’ he said.
Meanwhile, a meeting is likely to be held this evening between Shiv Sena leaders and NCP chief Sharad Pawar over the future of Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh.
The allegations were made a day after Deshmukh had said that Param Bir Singh was moved out as Mumbai Police Commissioner so that cases pertaining to Waze were probed without obstruction.
In the letter, Param Bir Singh, who has now been posted as Commandant General of Home Guards, said that he has been “made a scapegoat to divert attention from the actual wrongdoers”.
Anil Deshmukh on Thursday said that NIA and Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) are investigating Sachin Waze case very professionally and Param Bir Singh has been transferred as Mumbai Police Commissioner so that investigation can be done without any hindrance.
