Singh has argued that the orders issued by the Maharashtra government directing Maharashtra DGP Sanjay Pande to initiate preliminary inquiry against him are “illegal, outside the frame of law and therefore cannot be sustained in light of the settled principles of law.”After he was removed as the city police chief, Singh alleged in a letter to chief minister Uddhav Thackeray that Deshmukh had instructed suspended assistant police inspector Sachin Waze and some other police officers to collect `100 crore per month from bars, restaurants and other businesses and also filed a PIL against Deshmukh. Both Deshmukh and his party, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), have refuted the allegations.On April 5, Deshmukh tendered his resignation to Thackeray, hours after the court directed the CBI to conduct a preliminary inquiry into corruption allegations made by Singh against him.
Recently, the state home department, by an order on April 20, asked Pandey to conduct a ‘preliminary inquiry’ into a complaint of corruption lodged by assistant police inspector Anup Dange against Param Bir Singh on February 2. Dange’s complaint accused Singh of being involved in corruption.
