The Supreme Court of India has refused to entertain the plea of former Mumbai police chief Param Bir Singh seeking a CBI investigation into the alleged corrupt malpractices of Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, and asked him to approach the high court.
Following this, Param Bir Singh has withdrawn his plea from Supreme Court and said he will approach the Bombay high court.
“Liberty to approach the high court granted,” the Supreme Court says in its order.
Supreme Court had asked former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh why he has not made Maharashtra Home Minister a party in his petition as the allegations are levelled against him.
It’s unfortunate that Supreme Court’s judgement on police reform has not been implemented, said Supreme Court adding that the issue of police reforms props up only when some political situation explodes.
