Transfer probe outside Maha: Param Bir in SC | India News

NEW DELHI: Former Mumbai police chief Param Bir Singh, facing an inquiry into a 2015 case under the SC/ST Act which was registered after he made extortion allegations against former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh, moved the Supreme Court on Monday seeking transfer of the probe outside the state and to an independent agency like the CBI.
Singh sought a CBI inquiry into the cases registered against him by Maharashtra police and into the offer of “compromise” conveyed to him in a telephonic conversation which he had recorded last month. He sought a stay on his arrest in any of the cases “foisted” on him. The Bombay high court, which had ordered a CBI inquiry into the alleged extortion charges on Singh’s petition, was told by the Maharashtra government last week that Singh would not be arrested till May 20 on the SC/ST case brought against him by a policeman for an alleged incident in 2015.
