Mumbai | Former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh was questioned by two senior CBI officials for more than eight hours. This inquiry has been done in connection with the corruption charges leveled by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh. He was questioned more than 36 questions related to Singh’s allegations.
Sources said that while answering most of the questions, Deshmukh reportedly said that he is not involved in the case and alleged that the allegations were made for political purposes.
Senior Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leaders reached Kalina’s DRDO guest house at around 10 am on Wednesday.
Earlier on Monday, CBI interrogated two of Deshmukh’s associates – Kundan Shinde and Sanjeev Palande and recorded their statements.
Apart from this, the CBI also questioned Singh, suspended police inspector Sachin Waje, assistant police commissioner Sanjay Patil and one of the complainants, Jayashree Patil and some other witnesses.
