Ex-Maha HM gave list of officials for transfer and posting, says ED charge sheet

Published

on

 The Enforcement Directorate (ED) in its supplementary charge sheet filed against former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh and his two sons Hrishikesh and Salil, in 100 crore PMLA case, has alleged that Deshmukh used to prepare a list of his choice of police officials for transfer and postings. This list he would share with then additional chief secretary Sitaram Kunte and Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh.

The list of 12 Mumbai Police officials including IPS officers is under the scanner of the ED.

The ED is trying to know whether money was collected from the police officials for their choice of posting, or was there any other form of money transaction.

Kunte and Singh have told in their statement recorded by ED officials that they were receiving unofficial list of police officials for posting and transfer from Deshmukh.

However, Deshmukh has said that he was given the said list by a Maharashtra cabinet minister.

Singh had stated that Deshmukh, a cabinet minister, used to meet him at Sahyadri Guest House where he was given list of officials for transfer and posting. Param Bir Singh had issued transfer order of 10 DCPs which was stopped by Deshmukh and transport minister Anil Parab.

Sachin Vaze who has also been arrested in the case has alleged that Rs 40 crore were collected by the officials who were on that list. This allegation is being looked into.

Sachin Vaze was taken back into Mumbai Police after the suspension of 16 years. Deshmukh reportedly played a vital role in his rejoining. Vaze was given a lot of sensational cases so that he could collect money, it has been alleged.

Deshmukh and Vaze used to talk on phone frequently. Between December 2020 and February 2021, Vaze collected around Rs 4.70 crore from the owners of Orchestra bar situated across Mumbai.

Deshmukh’s PA Kundan Shinde allegedly collected the said amount from Vaze. Deshmukh’s PS Suryankant Palande allegedly passed instructions on behalf of Deshmukh.

The supplementary charge sheet running over 7,000 pages was filed before the special PMLA court of Mumbai in December.

Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh had accused Deshmukh of misusing his post. He had alleged that it was Deshmukh who was forcing him to collect Rs 100 crore every month from bars and restaurants in Mumbai. He made these allegations when he was removed from police commissioner post after Antilia case. Deshmukh has denied all the allegations levelled against him.

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has decided to include more women in decision-making committees of the Board.

After discontinuing its women’s wing in March 2022, the AIMPLB has not only restored it now, but has decided to include them in all its important committees for getting their views.

The women’s wing will educate women of the community about the rights and duties of women, according to Islamic Shariat.

Women members of the Board will campaign against expensive marriages, dowry in the Muslim society, as well as make families aware of giving daughters a share in the property instead of dowry.

Dr. Qasim Rasool Ilyas, executive member of the AIMPLB, said, “The women’s wing has been restored in the Board meeting on Sunday. The AIMPLB has 251 members across the country, out of which the number of women members is 30. The number of members of the executive committee is 51 in which four women have been included.”

He said, “Now, there will be one convener and five joint conveners in the women’s wing of the Board. They will work to make women members across the country. These members will make women aware about the rights of women and their duties found in Islamic Shariat. They will also give information about Islah-e-Ashara Tafaheem-e-Shariat and Kanoon-e-Shariat.”

Dr Qasim said that the AIMPLB has made Nikahnama simpler with some changes to bring it down from four pages to two pages. In the Nikahnama, along with the information about the husband and his rights after marriage, his duties have been given and guidelines have been given to the Qazi who performs marriage ceremony.
