Sena comes out in support of Param Bir Singh in its mouthpiece ‘Saamna’
Two days after Param Bir Singh was replaced as Mumbai Police Chief over the handling of the Mukesh Ambani security scare, Maharashtra’s ruling Shiv Sena in its mouthpiece ‘Saamna’ comes out in Param Bir Singh’s support.
“The 20 gelatin sticks found on Carmichael Road did not explode but these explosives are causing explosions in politics and the administration. The Mumbai Police Commissioner has had to go from his post because of this episode,” the Sena editorial says.
Just because Param Bir Singh had been removed did not mean it proved he had committed a crime, the editorial said.
“Param Bir Singh was responsible for the Mumbai Police at a very difficult time and in spite of the Sushant and Kangana case he did not let it affect the morale of the Mumbai Police. That is why even though the CBI was sent in, they could not go beyond the Mumbai Police probe in the case.” The Sena said the ratings scam was also detected during his tenure and a powerful lobby in Delhi was “angry” with him for that.
A Scorpio SUV with the gelatin sticks was found abandoned near Reliance Chairman Mukesh Ambani’s Mumbai home “Antilia” last month, along with a threat letter to Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani.
Assistant Police Inspector Sachin Waze, who was the first police officer on the case, has been arrested by the NIA over suspicion that he played a role in the bomb-laden car being parked near the Ambani home.
