Maharashtra’s Uddhav Thackeray government on Wednesday removed Parambir Singh from the post of Commissioner of Mumbai Police. He has been given the responsibility of the Home Guard Department. Hemant Nagrale has been appointed as Commissioner in place of Parambir Singh. Parambir Singh was facing criticism for dealing with explosives being found outside Mukesh Ambani’s house.
Why was Parambir Singh removed?
Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh today said that Parambir Singh transfer routine is not an administrative transfer. Being the Mumbai Police Department head, his associate (Sachin Waje) officer has made some serious mistakes. There have been mistakes for which forgiveness cannot be given. For this reason, he is transferred. In this case, action will be taken according to what will come in the investigation.
He said that the CP of Mumbai had been removed not to obstruct the NIA or ATS investigation. In the program of Lokmat, Anil Deshmukh told that if the NIA is engaged, anyone can be called for an investigation. He also said that the government of Mahavikas Aghadi is strong. The government will complete five years.
Let us tell you that on February 25, an SUV car with gelatin sticks was found near Mukesh Ambani’s residence in South Mumbai. The NIA is investigating this case. It was only during the investigation that Sachi Waje’s name came to light.
The NIA was arrested on March 13 for the alleged role of Waje. Sachin Waje was employed in the Crime Intelligence Branch of the Mumbai Police.
