NEW DELHI: Facing heat over corruption allegations levelled by former Mumbai police commissioner, Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh on Tuesday called on chief minister Uddhav Thackeray at the latter’s residence in Mumbai.
In his letter to Thackeray, shunted Mumbai top cop Param Bar Singh had said Deshmukh used to instruct senior cops, including Sachin Waze, to collect bribes from restaurants and bars and gave them a target of accumulating Rs 100 crore every month.
The senior NCP leader had denied the allegations, saying he will sue Singh.
Singh has also moved Supreme Court seeking a CBI probe into the corrupt allegations against Deshmukh.
