In a major development in the Sachin Vaze case, soon after ex-mumbai Police commissioner Parambir Singh accused Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh of extortion, the minister hit back to the Singh's accusations saying that the former Commissioner of Police, Parambir Singh has made false allegations in order to save himself as the involvement of Sachin Waze in Mukesh Ambani and Mansukh Hiren’s case is becoming clearer from the investigation carried out so far and threads are leading to Mr. Singh.
Parambir Singh who sent a letter to CM Uddhav Thackeray has made shocking revelations about the minister, Singh claimed that Deshmukh had directed suspended API Sachin Waze to collect Rs 100 crore every month for him from bars restaurants, other establishments.
"The Hon’ble Home Minister expressed to Shri Vaze that he had a target to accumulate Rs. 100 crores a month. For achieving the aforesaid target, the Hon’ble Home Minister told Shri Vaze that there are about 1,750 bars, restaurants and other establishments in Mumbai and if a sum of Rs. 2-3 lakhs each was collected from each of them, a monthly collection of Rs. 40-50 crores was achievable. The Hon’ble Home Minister added that the rest of the collection could be made from other sources," he wrote.
Singh said he had also briefed Deputy CM Ajit Pawar, other senior ministers, and NCP supremo Sharad Pawar. While briefing the ministers, the former Mumbai top cop noticed that some of them were already aware of some aspects mentioned by him.
He further said that Sachin Waze, who was heading the Crime Intelligence Unit of the Crime Branch of Mumbai Police was called by the Deshmukh to his official residence several times in the last few months and repeatedly instructed to assist in the collection of funds for the minister.
Meanwhile, Deshmukh on Thursday revealed the reason behind Param Bir Singh's transfer. He said the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) are investigating the Antilia bomb scare case, in which Mumbai Police officer Sachin Vaze has been arrested. "Singh has been transferred so that investigation can be done without any obstruction," Deshmukh said.
