Statements of two Mumbai police officers have been recorded in connection with city's former top cop Param Bir Singh's allegations of corruption and misconduct against former state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, an official said on Wednesday.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Enforcement) Raju Bhujbal and Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Sanjay Patil recorded their statements before Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) recently, the official said.
Param Bir Singh, who was under flak over the handling of the bomb scare outside industrialist Mukesh Ambani's residence, was transferred from the post of Mumbai police commissioner on March 17. Three days later, he wrote a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, in which he alleged that Mr Deshmukh had asked police officer Sachin Waze to collect Rs 100 crore per month from bars and restaurants.
Mr Deshmukh on Monday resigned as the home minister on "moral grounds" soon after the Bombay High Court ordered a CBI probe into the allegations levelled by Mr Singh.
