A local court in Mumbai ordered the custody of dismissed Mumbai Police officer Sachin Waze for 14 days in connection with an extortion case.
The Goregaon police had registered a case on July 23 against Sachin Waze, former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh and others. The investigation was handed over to the Mumbai Crime Branch.
Param Bir Singh had accused Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, of indulging in “malpractices” and he also accused suspended police officer Sachin Vaze of collecting ₹100 crore every month. Anil Deshmukh was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate for his alleged role in the case. He is currently not the jail under judicial custody.
The Enforcement Directorate had also shown Vaze as an accused in its chargesheet but they never arrested him. However, the 49-year-old former assistant police inspector was produced before the Special Judge M.G. Deshpande in connection with the money laundering case.
The Court remanded him to judicial custody under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
Anil Vaze is already in a judicial custody in connection with the Ambani terror scare case filed by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
