SC dismisses the petition of former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh, saying – 'Those whose houses are made of glass, they do not throw stones at others'
On Friday, the Supreme Court, while hearing the petition of former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh, dismissed it. Parambir Singh had demanded to transfer the ongoing departmental investigation against him out of the state and get the investigation done by a central agency.
The court said, “Parambir himself is serving in Maharashtra Police for 30 years. Despite this, they do not trust the state police, it is strange. They are demanding to send the case out of the state." Along with this, the court said that those whose houses are made of glass, they do not throw stones at others. At the same time, Parambir Singh has withdrawn the petition filed.
During the hearing, Parambir Singh's lawyer Mahesh Jethmalani said during the hearing that Parambir is being threatened to withdraw the petition. He said that if he does not take it back, he will be implicated in criminal cases.
SC advises to know Mumbai High Court
The Supreme Court said that you debate the merits of this matter and if you want an urgent hearing, then go to the Mumbai High Court. The Supreme Court said that it is surprising that you have served in Maharashtra Police for 30 years and now you do not trust the police of your own state. After this the court said that he is dismissing the petition. Parambir Singh's lawyer Mahesh Jethmalani said that he will approach the Mumbai High Court in this matter.
In fact, Parambir Singh was removed from the post of Mumbai Police Commissioner after the explosive material was found near the house of famous businessman Mukesh Ambani and the arrest of police officer Sachin Vajhe. In his petition, he has also challenged the transfer to the post of Home Guard DG.
