, ‘CBI probe needed’: Supreme Court rejects pleas of Anil Deshmukh, Maharashtra govt against Bombay HC order, The World Live Breaking News Coverage & Updates IN ENGLISH

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Thursday refused to cancel CBI probe ordered by the Bombay high court into charges levelled by ex-Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh against former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh.
The apex court dismissed the pleas filed by Maharashtra government and Anil Deshmukh against the high court order.
The top court said that CBI probe was needed in view of the nature of allegations, persons involved and the seriousness of allegations.
The court was so convinced with the HC order that opposite parties did not argue the case and the petitions were dismissed after hearing only the petitioners.
In its plea, the Maharashtra government had questioned the procedure adopted by high court saying the state was heard on question of maintainability of the pleas seeking CBI investigation against Deshmukh on allegation of corruption, and the order too was reserved on that issue, but the court finally ended up directing the probe.
After the high court order on April 5, Anil Deshmukh, a veteran politician from Vidarbha, had resigned from the state government.
