Home Minister Dilip Walse Patil has asked his department to submit a report on how a dismissed police officer was reinstated in the Mumbai Police in May.

After being dismissed from the force for threatening and demanding a bribe of Rs 22 lakh from a liquor shopowner in January 2019, Inspector Anand Bhoir was reinstated and posted at the police control room two months ago.

Bhoir was caught red-handed by the personnel of the Anti-Corruption Bureau, who were approached by the shopowner. Following a departmental inquiry, he was dismissed by then Mumbai Police commissioner Sanjay Barve last September.
