Maharashtra DGP Sanjay Pandey (left) was entrusted with the investigation of two cases against Parambir Singh.
Maharashtra Director General of Police (DGP) Sanjay Pandey has refused to conduct an inquiry against former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh. The investigation into the two charges against Singh was handed over to Sanjay Pandey by the Home Department.
However, Parambir against Pandey produced some evidence in the High Court, claiming that Pandey had pressurized him to withdraw the corruption charges leveled against Deshmukh by compromising with the state government.
Parambir Singh also wrote a letter to the CBI investigating the case, claiming that Pandey told him that if he withdraws the complaint, then the ongoing investigation against him will also be done. After these allegations, Pandey says that he does not want to investigate the matter.
CBI can interrogate Sanjay Pandey
The CBI can interrogate Pandey in the case following Parambir Singh’s allegation. As evidence, Singh has also submitted a recording of the conversation with Pandey during the WhatsApp call to the investigating agency and the court.

Opposition said- DGP cannot deny investigation
Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council, Praveen Darekar has said that the Director General of Police is an administrative officer. He works as per his orders under the guidance of the government. He cannot say that he is unable to investigate when he is assigned an investigation into a case. Darekar said that the question arises whether the DGP is afraid of getting caught in the case itself.
Anil Deshmukh filed an application in the High Court to stop the CBI investigation
Former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh has filed a petition in the Bombay High Court. In this petition, he has demanded the cancellation of the FIR lodged by the CBI against him in the corruption case. Deshmukh has also demanded the court to issue an interim order for protection with any strict action.
A few days ago, after registering an FIR, the CBI had killed Red in many places, including the residence of Deshmukh in Nagpur. CBI has registered a case against Deshmukh under Prevention of Corruption Act and Section 120 B of IPC. This case has been registered at a time when former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh has accused Deshmukh of running a recovery racket.
