Pandey, a 1986-batch officer, who is currently posted as Director General (Home Guards), has stated that since he is the seniormost officer in the state after DGP Subodh Jaiswal, he should have been considered for the posts of Mumbai Police commissioner and DG ACB.
In the first case, the ACB officials had received an information that GPCB officer Rajesh Patel has been collecting bribes from different industries in Palsana GIDC and was on his way to Ahmedabad on Saturday.
ACB arrested Tushar Savarkar, social worker at the state-run JJ Hospital, and Sachin Salve, organ transplant co-ordinator with the SL Raheja Hospital, for allegedly demanding Rs 1.5 lakh from a patient requiring a kidney transplant
Subsequently, the complainant approached the ACB sleuths, who laid a trap and caught the accused while he was accepting the bribe, the release said. An offence was registered against him at Trimbakeshwar police station, it said.
In his complaint, ACB Inspector Doshi stated that Sedani had amassed assets worth Rs 10.26 crore over the last 10 years beginning from January 2006. However, his income from all known sources, including loans came to around Rs 7.94 crore. Thus, he held disproportionate assets worth Rs 2.31 crore.
