The Bombay High Court on Monday, April 5, has asked CBI to dive into the corruption case where the former police commissioner Param Bir Singh has made several allegations against the state home minister Anil Deshmukh. It has asked the CBI to conduct a preliminary inquiry within 15 days.
Also, while hearing the petition filed by Dr. Jaishri Patel, the HC has concluded that Anil Deshmukh is the home minister of Maharashtra and hence impartial probe cannot be done by the police into the case, as quoted by ANI.

Well, the Bombay HC has also requested the CBI to register an FIR on finding out any kind of cognizable offense.
Though, earlier, the Bombay HC had declared that the petition filed by Jaishri is a part of ‘cheap politics”. It further said, “you have a doctorate in criminology. Show a single paragraph in the petition that you have drafted, except extracting some paragraphs from a letter and taking some paragraphs from orders of Supreme Court, what is your contribution?,” as per the sources of India Today.
Well, the contentious piece of news broke out in the country after the former police commissioner Param Bir Singh had convicted the state home minister Anil Deshmukh of grave ‘extortion’ racket. He penned a letter in which he mentioned that Deshmukh used to conduct an ‘extortion’ racket via some police officials, i.e., to collect a massive amount of money from bars and restaurants.
