Spilling beans on the sudden transfer of the former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said that the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) had found some “unpardonable mistakes” committed by him.
Deshmukh was speaking to the media when he revealed that Singh was not transferred through a routine procedure. He added ‘unforgivable lapses in probe’ of the Antilia bomb scare set off Singh’s transfer. Deshmukh said the decision to transfer the police commissioner was taken by him in conjunction with Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.
“The probe in the case is underway. The matter was first handled by him(Singh). As the Mumbai Police Chief, unforgivable mistakes were made by his colleagues from his office. So the decision to transfer him was taken,” said Deshmukh.
“Some police officers have made mistakes. Those who are found guilty in the investigation will be prosecuted. The NIA will investigate how the explosives were planted outside Antilia. ATS and NIA are professional agencies and they will trace the culprits involved in this case.” he further added.
