Maharashtra govt directs Mumbai police commissioner to probe Param Bir-Waze meeting
Maharashtra govt ordered a probe into the meeting between former Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh and dismissed police officer Sachin Waze
The Maharashtra government on Tuesday ordered a probe into the meeting between former Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh and dismissed police officer Sachin Waze, on Monday when Singh had appeared before an inquiry commission.
Singh and Waze are co-accused in an extortion case in Mumbai.
Waze is in judicial custody and as per the rules he is not supposed to meet anyone. I have instructed Mumbai police commissioner Hemant Nagrale to probe the matter, Maharashtra Home Minister Dilip Walse Patil told reporters on Tuesday.
Objecting to Singh, the DG of Home Guards who remained absent in office for long before resurfacing last week to face the investigation in cases of extortion, using a government vehicle for his movements, Walse Patil said this matter will also be probed.
"Such meeting between Waze and Param Bir Singh is absolutely wrong. Waze can be met only with the permission of the court. But it seems he has not obtained any such permission to meet Waze," the home minister said.
The alleged meeting took place on Monday in an adjoining room on the second floor of a building housing Singh' office in south Mumbai when he appeared before Justice Chandiwal (retired) Commission probing the allegations of corruption levelled by him against the then state home minister Anil Deshmukh.
