CBI files FIR against Anil Deshmukh over corruption allegation

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Saturday filed a FIR against former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh over allegations of corruption levelled by ex-Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh. The agency invoked the Prevention of Corruption Act and 120 B (criminal conspiracy) in filing the FIR and also raided his residence along with three other places in Mumbai in connection with the case. The CBI's preliminary enquiry into the corruption allegations against Deshmukh was completed last Friday. 

The investigation was taken up by the CBI after the High Court of Bombay directed it on April 5 to conduct a preliminary investigation into the case within 15 days. On April 8, the SC ruled 8 that the allegations levelled against the former minister were "serious" and needed probe by the central agency. Allegations are serious, the home minister and police commissioner are involved. They're closely working together till they fall apart, and both are holding a particular position. Should the CBI not probe? The nature of allegations and the persons involved require independent probe," said the SC bench.
