The Maharashtra Government on Tuesday appointed former Bombay High Court Judge, KU Chandiwal to conduct a high-level judicial inquiry into corruption allegations against State Home Minister Anil Deshmukh and submit a report within six months.

The decision has been taken a night before a bench led by the Chief Justice of the Bombay High Court, Dipankar Datta, is set to hear the criminal PIL filed by Singh.

Singh was shunted out of the CPs office and transferred to the Maharashtra Police's Home Guards Department on March 18. Singh wrote an explosive letter to Maharashtra's Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on March 20, making serious allegations of corruption against Deshmukh.

The State Government notification issued on Tuesday mentions three reference points.

1. Does Singh's letter dated March 20, prove any wrong-doing or criminal act on part of the home minister or anyone from his office.

2. Based on the letter written by Param Bir Singh after his transfer and based on the alleged information provided by ACP Sanjay Patil and API Sachin Waze, is a bribery related crime warranting investigation by the Anti-Corruption Bureau or any other agency made out against Deshmukh or any other official of his office.

3. Report is sought on the first to points from Justice Chandiwal.
