Maharashtra government will take legal action against Parambir Singh: Nawab Malik

Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik said on Thursday that the state government will take legal steps to ensure that the Supreme Court’s protection from arrest granted to former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh is withdrawn.

Malik said that while the police will investigate the cases against Singh, the state will try to ensure that he is arrested. Malik said, “No matter how big a person is, if that person has committed a crime, there should be an arrest. If there is a legal issue, the government will definitely try to address it,” Malik indicated, adding that the state would approach the government. SC on the matter

The then Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had claimed that Singh had kept him in the dark about the activities of Sachin Waje, who had allegedly planted explosives near the residence of industrialist Mukesh Ambani. Singh had denied all the allegations against him in a letter addressed to CM Uddhav Thackeray. Following the allegation, Singh went on leave and several extortion cases were filed against him in Mumbai and Thane.

Singh, who was earlier declared a fugitive by a local court, reached the city on Thursday and was questioned by crime branch officials. According to PTI, Singh, who flew here from Chandigarh, reached the office of Mumbai Police’s crime branch’s Unit 11 in Kandivali just after 11 am. He left around 6.15 pm. The officer, who is still the Director General of Home Guards in Maharashtra, arrived in an official car and left.

Malik also targeted NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhede, putting a question mark on his caste certificate. He said that his mother Zaheda died on April 16, 2015, and a certificate describing her as a Muslim woman was taken for burial at Oshiwara’s cemetery. “But the next day, her family received another death report, stating that she belonged to Hinduism. This was done because the family wanted to claim her (Zahida’s) property as a Hindu woman and So he took a Hindu name.” said. The minister also posted certificates on his Twitter handle in support of his claim. Malik said the state excise department was probing how Wankhede obtained a one-time license when he was just a minor (17 years old).

Later in the day, Malik told the Bombay High Court that he would not make any statement against Wankhede till December 9.
