Suspended police officer Sachin Vaze has been remanded to NIA custody till April 9. Vaze has shared a 3 page letter to the media. In that letter, it is alleged that former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had demanded Rs 2 crore to retain his job. This alleged letter is of 3 pages. The letter contains the name of another leader of the Maha Vikas Aghadi alliance.
The alleged letter claims, NCP chief Sharad Pawar was against Vaze's reinstatement into Mumbai Police in 2020 and wanted it to be revoked. To this, then Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh allegedly told Sachin Vaze that if he pays Deshmukh Rs 2 crore, he will convince Sharad Pawar to allow Sachin Vaze back into the force.
"The home minister told me that he will convince Pawar saheb and for that purpose, he asked me to pay Rs 2,00,00,000. I had expressed my inability to pay such an amount. On this the home minister asked me to pay it in a later course," Sachin Vaze wrote.
Sachin Vaze has also claimed that Maharashtra Transport Minister and Shiv Sena leader Anil Parab had asked him to extort money for him.
Additionally, Sachin Vaze has also claimed that he had told then Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh about the extortion demands made by Anil Deshmukh and Anil Parab.
Param Bir Singh reportedly told him to not act on the demands.
