In a setback to ex-Mumbai Commissioner Param Bir Singh, the Maharashtra Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has been allowed by the Maharashtra govt to do an open investigation into bribery allegations by Inspector Anoop Dange. Sources further report that the ACB has already recorded Dange's statement on Thursday and submitted a report to Maharashtra govt seeking to conduct an 'open probe'. Dange had alleged that he was asked to pay Rs 2 crore by Singh's relative for being reinstated into police force.
In a letter to the Maharashtra Home department, Dange claimed that Param Bir Singh after taking charge as Mumbai Police Commissioner, suspended him because he had filed an FIR against a very influential accused in 2019 and the CP wanted his name to be dropped from the chargesheet. Even before taking charge as CP, Parambir Singh as DG ACB had opposed the filing of the FIR, it added. Dange, who was recently reinstated by the state government, alleged that Param Bir Singh had close connections with underworld gangsters claiming he had evidence against Param Bir's “deep-rooted connections".
The letter further claimed that in 2020, Parambir Singh had asked Dange to pay Rs 50 lakh to avoid any action against him. “Failing to pay the amount, Dange was suspended from the force. He was contacted again by the CP’s relative, demanding 2 crore for reinstatement which was later reduced to 1 crore,” it said.,blackjack-bonus-no-deposit
