Hearing on petition of former Mumbai Police Commissioner in SC, know what CBI said?

Mumbai: The Supreme Court has begun hearing a petition filed by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh. Param Bir Singh has sought the Supreme Court to quash the complaint filed against him in Mumbai or hand over the probe to the CBI in the petition. In the last hearing, the Supreme Court had issued a notice to the CBI in the case and the CBI today submitted its reply to the Supreme Court. the CBI has said in the Supreme Court that it is ready to take over the investigation if the cases against Param Bir are investigated by him. The Central Investigating Agency also cited the CHET transcript of Maharashtra DGP Sanjay Pandey given by Param Bir. CBI said it was a clear attempt by Pandey to interfere in the investigation handed over by the court. The Central Investigating Agency said it is clearly visible that the matter is being put at risk. In such a situation, it should be ensured that such attempts fail.

What did the Maharashtra Government and the CBI say?

On the other hand, Param Bir Singh's advocate has said that he has no problem if the matter is investigated by the CBI or the FIR is cancelled. CBI said it is ready to take over the investigation of criminal cases registered by Maharashtra Police against Param Bir Singh. But the Central Investigating Agency feared that the state could take steps that could make it difficult for former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh to complete the investigation. The Maharashtra government has told the Supreme Court that there is already a complaint in the matter and there is no justification for CBI inquiry. On the other hand, in the case of Param Bir Singh, the Supreme Court granted interim relief to another criminal Binu Nayan Varghese. The Supreme Court has imposed an interim ban on the arrest of Varghese. The hearing has been postponed for 3 weeks at present.

It may be recalled that on December 6, the Supreme Court had said that it believed that the ongoing investigation against Param Bir Singh should be handed over to another agency. The matter should not be investigated by the State Police. Thereafter, the CBI told the Supreme Court that it was ready to conduct an ongoing inquiry against the former Commissioner of Mumbai Police. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing before the court on behalf of the CBI, had said that if we are entrusted with the responsibility of investigating the case, we are ready for it.
