Supreme Court: Allegations Against Anil Deshmukh Require CBI Probe
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that allegations of corruption and misconduct against former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, levelled by ex-Mumbai CP Parambir Singh, were serious and required a CBI probe.
“Allegations are serious, the home minister and Police commissioner are involved. They’re closely working together till they fall apart, both holding a particular position. Should the CBI not probe? The nature of allegations and the persons involved require independent probe,” said Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul.
Maharashtra government and Deshmukh had filed petitions earlier this week challenging an order by Bombay High Court directing a CBI probe into the matter.
