Shunted Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh Writes Tell All Letter to Maharashtra CM
Maha Home Minister Anil Deshmukh Wanted Rs 100cr A Month': Top Cop Param Bir Singh's Writes In a Letter
Former Commissioner of Mumbai Police Param Bir Singh stirred a hornet’s nest with an explosive letter. The shunted cop sent a letter to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. He alleged that the state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had asked controversial cop Sachin Vaze to collect Rs. 100 crore every month. The money was to be collected from bars, restaurants and other establishments. Anil Deshmukh soon issued a statement denying the allegations.
But Uddhav Thackeray reportedly said that the authenticity of the letter itself was under question as it was not signed by Parma Bir. The unsigned letter was not sent by his official account, so it is possible that the letter is fake. The letter was received from firstname.lastname@example.org while the official email ID given by Param Bir to the government was email@example.com.

Home Minister issued another statement rubbishing the allegations. He accused Singh of hatching a conspiracy. It was to defame him and the Maha Vikas Aghadi government.
He wrote, #Param Bir Singh’s allegations are absolutely baseless and he should prove his allegations against me. I am filing a defamation lawsuit against him. When Singh realised he is in trouble with respect to the Antilia bomb scare, he started making false allegations so as to blackmail the government.”
Soon after Anil Deshmukhs’s statement shunted cop Param Bir Singh told the media that the letter was authentic. He added that he was sending another copy, duly signed by him, to the government.

Param Bir Singh was removed as Police Commissioner of Mumbai and appointed Commandant General of Home Guards (Maharashtra) by the state Home Department. The decision was made in light of the probe into the Antilia bomb scare and subsequent death of car dealer Mansukh Hiren. In both of these cases, which are now being investigated by the NIA, ‘encounter specialist’ Sachin Vaze is a key suspect.
