The Bombay High Court on Wednesday will hear a plea by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh, who has unleashed a barrage of allegations against Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, and seeking a CBI probe against him.
Singh moved to Bombay High Court after the Supreme Court refused to entertain his plea regarding the same. Singh, who was shunted out as Mumbai Police Commissioner in the wake of the Antilia bomb scare case, has also challenged the government's order to transfer him from the post of Mumbai Police Commissioner.
In his petition, Singh has accused Deshmukh of adopting corrupt practices in posting or transfer of police officers and seeking to implicate BJP leaders in MP Mohan Delkar's suicide. He urged the Supreme Court to direct a fair CBI investigation into the acts of Deshmukh in abuse of his official position.
He further accused Deshmukh of adopting corrupt practices in posting or transfers in police in addition with extortion of Rs 100 crore per month from various establishments.
