Transfer Racket: Major Changes In Mumbai’s Crime Branch After Meeting Between CM Uddhav Thackeray and Home Minister Anil Deshmukh

Parambir Singh wrote a letter to CM Uddhav Thackeray last week, claiming that Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh has asked the police officers to make a monthly recovery of Rs 100 crore.

 

The Maharashtra government late Tuesday transferred 86 officers, including 65 policemen from Mumbai Crime Branch. This is the biggest reshuffle in the state’s police department after the transfer of Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh. Earlier in the evening, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had a meeting with top officials of the state at his government residence. A few hours later, Home Minister Anil Deshmukh also came to meet the CM. Only after these two meetings has this change been made in the police department.

The NIA is questioning the suspended API Sachin Waze of the Mumbai Police in the same case following the alleged suicide of Mansukh Hiren, the owner of the SUV recovered in the Antilia case. Amidst suspicion, new revelations are happening in this case every day. Meanwhile, another woman IPS officer and former Intelligence Commissioner Rashmi Shukla of the state had made a big disclosure about the transfer of police officers in Maharashtra. She had told in his report that the brokers are active in the Maharashtra Police Department, who run the transfer racket. Today on the matter, Leader of the Opposition Devendra Fadnavis had called a press conference in the morning and went to Delhi and met the Union Home Secretary in the evening.

Parambir Singh has made sensational allegations on the state’s Home Minister Anil Deshmukh. Parambir Singh wrote a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray last week, claiming that Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh has asked the police officers to make a monthly recovery of Rs 100 crore. In a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, Singh said that Deshmukh had told police officer Sachin Vaze that he had set a target of recovering Rs 100 crore every month from bars, restaurants and other such establishments.

Half of this amount is to be recovered from 1,750 bars running in the city, restaurants and other such establishments. After this letter a political storm erupted in the state. Deshmukh has denied these allegations. The opposition is demanding his removal. However, so far NCP chief Sharad Pawar is defending Deshmukh regarding the matter.
