THE Maharashtra Home Department has ordered an inquiry against former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh in connection with the allegations of corruption levelled against him by an inspector, sources said on Thursday. As per the orders, Maharashtra DGP Sanjay Pandey has been asked to probe the allegations against Singh, they said. The allegations were made by police inspector Anup Dange, who was suspended last year and reinstated in the force recently.
As per Dange’s claims, Singh had demanded Rs two crore from him to revoke his suspension. The inspector had written a letter to the Additional Chief Secretary (Home) about Singh’s demand. Singh had, however, denied the allegations levelled by the Inspector. Based on the complaint, the Home Department ordered an inquiry into the charges against Singh, the sources said. Maharashtra DGP was not available for his comment on the issue. This is a second inquiry that the State Government has ordered against Singh.
