Why didn’t you file FIR against Anil Deshmukh, court asks Param Bir Singh

Singh, a former Mumbai Police commissioner, is seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe against Deshmukh, the Maharashtra home minister, for allegedly running an ‘extortion racket.’

A division bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice G S Kulkarni also said that without an FIR the high court cannot intervene and direct for an independent agency like CBI to carry out an investigation.

Singh, who was shifted from the post of Mumbai police commissioner on March 17, had initially approached the Supreme Court, alleging that he was transferred after he complained to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and other senior leaders about the “corrupt malpractices” of Deshmukh. The top court had, however, asked him to approach the high court.

After his transfer, Singh had claimed that Deshmukh asked police officer Sachin Waze and others to collect ₹100 crore per month from bars and restaurants. But the minister has denied any wrongdoing.
