Mumbai, 8/4 (AO Bureau)There is big news among the ongoing recovery dramas in Maharashtra. The Supreme Court has dismissed the petition of former state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh and the Maharashtra government. In this petition, the government and former minister challenged the order of the High Court. Recently, the Bombay High Court had ordered a CBI inquiry against the corruption charges leveled against the former minister. Deshmukh was accused of corruption by Parambir Singh, Commissioner of Mumbai Police.
Anil Deshmukh and the Maharashtra government, who reached the Supreme Court after the CBI inquiry order from the High Court, have not been relieved. The bench of Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Hemant Gupta dismissed the petition. The state government said that the court could not order an inquiry against the former home minister without giving him a chance. Earlier Deshmukh had said that if the Chief Minister wishes, give an order for an inquiry. I will welcome him.
During the hearing of the case, Justice Kaul said that due to the seriousness of the allegations and the people involved, the matter needs to be investigated by an independent agency. It is a matter of people’s trust. He said that whatever order has been given, it is only a matter of preliminary inquiry. Therefore, we do not want to interfere in any order. He said, “The two people involved in the case were working together before separating.” Both were in high positions. In such a situation, an independent investigation is needed.
