Maharashtra Police have filed an FIR against former Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh after a police inspector levelled corruption charges against him, a senior official said on Thursday. The FIR has been registered at Akola in Vidarbha against Singh, DCP Parag Manere and 26 other policemen.
The city Kotwali police in Akola registered the FIR against the police personnel under various sections ranging from criminal conspiracy, destruction of evidence and sections of the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities Act).
Akola police filed a Zero FIR (mode of lodging FIR in any police station irrespective of the offence committed in that area or any other area) at the Kotwali police station and it had been transferred to the Thane city police.
Police inspector Bhimrao Ghadge in his complaint has made a series of allegations of corruption against Singh and other officers, in the period when the former Mumbai CP was posted with the Thane police.
Ghadge also claimed that Singh had asked him not to charge-sheet certain individuals against whom FIRs had been registered.
