The Maharashtra state government-appointed Justice (retired) K U Chandiwal Commission on Thursday asked former Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh to be appear before the commission at the earliest or face execution of a bailable warrant already issued against him.
During the hearing, Justice Chandiwal inquired from Singh’s lawyer when Singh would present himself before the commission, to which the lawyer replied that he would need to take instructions from his senior on the question. Justice Chandiwal then asked the lawyer to ensure Singh’s presence before the commission, or the police would be directed to execute a bailable warrant against him for his appearance. The commission took out the bailable warrant on September 7.
“Apprise that the bailable warrant is still in force. Please ensure the presence of Singh before the commission or else police will be directed to execute the bailable warrant against him for his appearance,” Justice Chandiwal said to Singh’s lawyer.
For the third consecutive day, dismissed assistant police inspector (API) Sachin Waze was cross examined before the Chandiwal Commission Thursday. The cross examination was continued by lawyer Shekhar Jagtap on behalf of Sanjeev Palande, an aide of former home minister Anil Deshmukh, both of whom were later arrested by the ED and are currently behind bars.
Jagtap asked him whether Waze along with other police officials met Deshmukh at his official residence on February 24, 2021, and what the purpose behind it was, to which Waze replied that it was regarding election preparation. The lawyer also asked if it was the only meeting between Deshmukh and Waze, to which Waze replied in the affirmative.
