Mumbai:The Chandiwal Commission, set up to probe the Rs 100 crore recovery case, has submitted its report to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray today. It is said that in this report, the Chandiwal Commission has given a clean chit to the jailed former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh?
The then Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh had last year accused Home Minister Anil Deshmukh of extortion of 100 crores, after which there was an earthquake in Maharashtra politics.
Parambir Singh wrote a letter to CM Uddhav Thackeray on 20 March 2020 alleging that Home Minister Anil Deshmukh has ordered recovery of 100 crores every month from 1750 bars and restaurants in Mumbai.
This recovery work was given by the Home Minister to API Sachin Wajhe. Deshmukh had to leave the ministerial post after Singh’s allegation and the ED had also clamped down on Deshmukh. To know the truth of the allegations of 100 crores, the state government had constituted a commission under the leadership of retired Bombay High Court judge KU Chandiwal. .
The Chandiwal Commission carefully examined every evidence and witness related to these allegations and prepared its report. If sources are to be believed, the commission has given a clean chit to former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, terming Parambir’s allegations as baseless?
