Param Bir letter: File corruption offence, says ex-IPS officer
Meanwhile, former IPS officer PK Jain on Saturday mentioned an offence needs to be registered in opposition to Deshmukh beneath the anti-corruption Act.
“To my thoughts, an offence beneath the anti-corruption Act needs to be registered immediately. Deshmukh has no proper to proceed in his place as a result of if Param Bir Singh will be faraway from his place for finishing up a good probe, then I feel by the identical analogy the minister has no enterprise to
proceed in his place,” Jain mentioned.
A Special Investigation Team (SIT) beneath courtroom supervision ought to probe this matter, Jain mentioned.
“Whether the charges are true or false is a different matter altogether,” Jain mentioned, including police are all the time “under the thumb” of their political masters.
“Any officer who is liked by them is given plum postings. When I say plum posting they are all field postings, the ‘desirable’ postings. Any officer who does not listen to them, who does not tow their line, is always thrown on the sidelines,” Jain mentioned.
A 1981-batch IPS officer, Jain was the secretary of the Maharashtra State IPS Officers’ Association and served as principal secretary (residence), joint commissioner (admin) of Mumbai police, managing director of Maharashtra State Security Corporation, and likewise as ADG (particular operations).
“I can vouch and say with authority that not one of the politicians is within the police reforms. Nobody needs the police to be impartial. Everybody needs the police to be beneath their thumb to perform their needs – by way of arrests, by way of enforcement, by way of doing no matter
they need to do, by way of collections,” Jain mentioned.
He mentioned Singh in his letter has given particular examples. “He is giving specific dates and persons who were present in such a meeting when the money was demanded. Singh is a serving officer. If he has leveled charges in writing, it is serious.”
“And obviously he would be having some order or some material to back up his claims, which he will come out with at the right time. So, I think the situation has come down to a level where it is a slap on the face of Maharashtra government,” Jain mentioned.
He mentioned Singh talked about within the letter that he introduced this problem (Rs 100 crore demand) to the discover of the chief minister.
“He brought it to the notice of the deputy chief minister. He also brought it to the notice of the NCP supremo,” Jain added.
“But yes, if extortion was being done on his behalf and on behalf of the minister and he was keeping quiet, I think he (Singh) is also a party. But I think this is all a matter of investigation,” he mentioned.
“In the meantime, we should not forget that the basic picture of the gelatin being planted outside Ambani’s house and the probe into that was pointing to a different party and a different line altogether,” Jain mentioned.
