MUMBAI: Maharashtra Police have filed a FIR against former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param One Singh after a police inspector brought corruption charges against him, a senior official said Thursday.
The FIR has registered in Akola in Vidarbha against Singh, DCP Parag Manere and 26 other policemen.
Kotwali City Police in Akola registered the FIR against police personnel in various sections ranging from criminal conspiracy, destruction of evidence, and sections of the Scheduled Caste and Tribe (Atrocity Prevention Act), 1989.
Akola Police filed a Zero FIR (a way to house FIR at any police station, regardless of the crime committed in that area or any other area) at Kotwali Police Station and has been transferred to Thane City Police, said the official to PTI.
Police Inspector Bhimrao Ghadge, in his complaint, had made a number of allegations of corruption against Singh and other officers, in the period when the former Mumbai PC was assigned to the Thane Police.
Ghadge, who was stationed at Thane Police Commissioner from 2015-2018, has alleged that during his tenure, several officers under Singh’s command had indulged in various acts of corruption. He also claimed that Singh had asked him not to press charges against certain individuals against whom FIR had registered.
Ghadge, who is now stationed in the Akola police control room, also alleged that after he refused to obey Singh’s instructions, five FIRs were registered against him and he was suspended.
