Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh has sent out another note, this time accusing new Maharashtra DGP Sanjay Pandey of corruption.

In a letter to the CBI, Param Bir Singh claims that DGP Sanjay Pandey told him that if he dropped his complaint against former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, he will settle pending investigations against him.

Authorities in Maharashtra, according to Param Bir Singh, are attempting to “thwart” the investigation launched against Anil Deshmukh in a malicious manner. He also said that witnesses are being manipulated.

Param Bir Singh claims in his letter to the CBI that he is recounting his conversation with Maharashtra Police Chief Sanjay Pandey. Param Bir Singh writes that he called DGP Sanjay Pandey and was shocked when the DGP brought up his imminent CBI investigation during the conversation.

Param Bir Singh claims that DGP Pandey indicated that he would like to advise him on the matter.

DGP Pandey further allegedly told Param Bir Singh to withdraw his letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, according to the letter.

The letter was the subject of writs before the Supreme Court and the Bombay High Court, which resulted in a judicial order authorizing the CBI to conduct a preliminary investigation into Anil Deshmukh.

Param Bir Singh claims in his letter to the CBI that, “He advised that if I withdrew the letter, it would imply that the preliminary inquiry by CBI would become infructuous as the judicial order dated April 5, 2021, would be rendered meaningless.”
