11.After the assembly of Shri Vaze with the Hon’ble Home Minister, he had mentioned the directions of the Hon’ble Home Minister with Shri Patil and each of them had approached me with their predicaments.
12.The Hon’ble Home Minister has as an everyday apply been repeatedly calling my officers and giving them directions in respect of the course to be adopted by them in efficiency of their official duties. The Hon’ble Home Minister has been calling my officers at his official residence bypassing me and different superior officers of the Police Department to whom these respective Police Officers report to. The Hon’ble Home Minster has been instructing them to perform official assignments and assortment schemes together with monetary transactions as per his directions based mostly on his expectations and targets to accumulate cash. These corrupt malpractices have been introduced to my discover by my officers.
13.In the current context, I’ll add that late Shri Mohan Delkar, Member of Parliament, Dadra & Nagar Haveli was discovered lifeless at Hotel Sea Green on twenty second February 2021. The Marine Drive Police Station recorded ADR No. 5/21 in relation to the suicide. A suicide word was discovered within the course of investigation. The stated suicide word blamed senior officers of Dadra & Nagar Haveli and the difficulty inflicted by them on Shri Delkar being the trigger of suicide. An applicable investigation was being undertaken by the Marine Drive Police Department within the stated ADR.
14.However, from day one, the Hon’ble Home Minister desired a case of abetment of suicide to be registered at Mumbai. My skilled view after searching for applicable authorized recommendation was that whereas the suicide had occurred in Mumbai, all of the alleged acts of abetment had taken place in Dadra & Nagar Haveli. Thus, the abetment of suicide, if any, was required to be investigated by the Police at Dadra & Nagar Haveli who would have jurisdiction in that regard. You will recollect that in a briefing held at Varsha quickly after the incident within the presence of a Hon’ble Minister and a number of other different officers, after I drew consideration of all involved about my view, there was common settlement that the alleged acts of abetment might solely be investigated by the Police at Dadra & Nagar Haveli.
15.Dutybound to accomplish that, I held to my skilled view as suggested by authorized consultants. The Hon’ble Home Minister saved insisting in any other case regardless of having been knowledgeable by me in regards to the opinion of authorized consultants on this challenge. Due to my resistance, the Hon’ble Home Minister was sad with me because the political mileage desired to be derived from the registration of the abetment of suicide case in Mumbai within the loss of life of Shri Mohan Delkar, Member of Parliament towards senior officers of Dadra & Nagar Haveli was not being achieved.
16.Despite being absolutely conscious of the opinion of the authorized consultants, the overall opinion and the explanations behind it, the Hon’ble Home Minister introduced the organising of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) and registration of an FIR into the alleged case of abetment of suicide of late Shri Mohan Delkar, Member of Parliament, Dadra & Nagar Haveli, on the ground of the Maharashtra Assembly on ninth March 2021.
17.It has been my expertise over the last a couple of 12 months as Commissioner of Police, Mumbai that the Hon’ble Home Minister has on quite a few events referred to as a number of officers from the Mumbai Police to his official residence at Dyaneshwar for giving directions to undertake a particular course of motion in police investigations. These acts of political interference are unlawful & unconstitutional and Courts in our nation together with the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India have up to now come down closely on such acts of interference in police investigations. In the occasion of my expressing reservations towards the interference from the Hon’ble Home Minister and resistance from me in that regard, the Hon’ble Home Minister has discovered my reservations and resistance undesirable.
18.I’ll humbly submit that I take full accountability of my police drive. However, the cases of interference make it clear that the accountability of wrongdoings might lie some place else on the door of the wrongdoers.
19.On a collective appraisal of occasions which have transpired and what’s being identified by me makes it clear that I’ve been made a scapegoat to divert consideration from the precise wrongdoers.
20.It will not be out of place to point out that there isn’t a iota of materials or proof removed from proof discovered towards me and even imputed towards me. Except for conjectures, surmises and pure hypothesis, no element of any type towards me has been observed by anyone. The name information and telephone knowledge of Shri Sachin Vaze be examined to confirm the reality of the allegations qua me and for the reality to emerge insofar as his affiliation with political functionaries is worried.
21.In these circumstances, the assertions of the Hon’ble Home Minister to the impact that my switch will not be for administrative or routine causes, I’ve performed critical lapses and the intense lapses within the investigation dedicated by me are unpardonable are all statements opposite to the file and appear to be for extraneous and vindictive causes.
22.As a civil servant serving the Nation & the State for greater than 32 years, the folks of Mumbai and the Department of Police, I’ve been recipient of prestigious awards like Khadtar Seva Medal Naxalite Area, DGP’s Insignia 2004, Special Service Medal 2006 and Police Medal for Meritorious Services.
23.I’ve humbly apprised you of the true image so as to place earlier than you for consideration and corrective motion, being absolutely cognizant to the retaliation that’s doubtless towards me for putting the true image on file.
