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.
