Mumbai: Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh has written to Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray informing him about State Home Minister Anil Deshmukh’s alleged involvement in a money extortion racket involving Sachin Waze, who has been arrested in connection with a terror/murder case, and several other police officers. The target was to collect Rs 100 crore per month.

Sharply reacting to this letter, leader of Opposition and former Chief Minister Devedra Fadnavis said in a statement: “We demand Home Minister’s resignation. If he doesn’t then CM must remove him.” Demanding a fair, Fadnavis has asked why the CM did not act when he was intimated about this earlier.
