Bombay High Court has agreed to hear the Petition filed by Former Mumbai Police Chief Param Bir Singh seeking a CBI inquiry against the alleged corrupt malpractices of Anil Deshmukh, Home Minister Government of Maharashtra.

Senior Advocate Vikram Nankani mentioned the matter before Chief Justice Dipankar Datta.

Chief Justice has agreed to hear the mater tomorrow.

The PIL filed Article 226 of the Constitution of India seeks an "immediate, unbiased, uninfluenced impartial and fair investigation on the various corrupt malpractices of Anil Deshmukh before evidences are destroyed."

Supreme Court on Wednesday asked Param Bir Singh to approach Bombay High Court with his plea seeking CBI investigation in the alleged corrupt malpractices of Anil Deshmukh, Home Minister of Government of Maharashtra.

Singh, who was shunted out from the Mumbai Police Commissionerate in the wake of Ambani bomb scare case, has also prayed that transfer of police officials are neither done on any consideration of pecuniary benefits to any politicians nor in contravention of the guidelines issued in Prakash Singh & others vs Union of India.

Singh has also sought the complete file containing the report of Rashmi Shulka Commissioner of (Intelligence), State Intelligence Department as well as the connected file of the Home Department as interim relief.

He has further sought for an independent agency to take custody of the entire CCTV footage of Deshmukh's residence to prevent its destruction.

The cop's explosive letter to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackarey raising allegations against Deshmukh, which found its way to the press on Saturday, has put the Maha Vikas Agadi government in a spot.

Parambir had earlier approached the Supreme Court that refused to entertain his plea and directed him to first approach the Bombay High Court.

"No doubt the matter is quite serious affecting administration at large. It appears a lot of material has come in public domain due to personas falling apart," the SC observed on Wednesday.

In his petition Singh has submitted Deshmukh had been holding meetings in February, 2021 at his residence with police officers including Sachin Vaze of Crime Intelligence Unit, Mumbai and Sanjay Patil, ACP Social Service Branch, Mumbai, bypassing their seniors and had instructed them that he had a target to accumulate Rs. 100 crores every month and had directed to collect money from various establishments and other sources.

He claimed that on or about 24th/25th August 2020, Rashmi Shukla, the Commissioner Intelligence, State Intelligence Department had brought to the notice of the Director General of Police, who in turn brought it to the knowledge of the Addl Chief Secretary Home Department, Government of Maharashtra about corrupt malpractices in postings / transfers by Shri Anil Deshmukh based on a telephonic interception. "She was shunted out rather than taking any firm action against the persons involved."

The respondents in the PIL are State of Maharashtra, Union of India, Central Bureau of Investigation and Anil Deshmu
