The Thane police commissioner Jai Jeet Singh soon after receiving the letter from complainant Ibrahim Sheikh Pasha which alleged those police officers from Mumbra extorted Rs 6 crore from Rs 30 crore raided in a fake raid from Faisal Memon's house acted on it and ordered an inquiry in the matter by DCP Zone-1 unit, Thane Additional Commissioner Avinash Ambure.
