New Delhi, Apr 7 Asecond team of the CBI arrived in Mumbai on Wednesday to probe allegations of corruption against former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh. This comes a day after the Central Bureau of Investigation initiated an inquiry into the matter. Nearly half a dozen officers from CBI led by a Superintendent of Police (SP) rank officer will be recording statements in connection with the case, sources told India Today. In a letter to Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray, former Mumbai Commissioner of Police Param Bir Singh had accused Anil Deshmukh of corruption. A team of CBI officers had arrived in Mumbai on Tuesday after registering a preliminary inquiry (PE) against Anil Deshmukh at the direction of the Bombay High Court. Sources privy to the probe said both teams of the CBI will record the statements of potential witnesses, suspects and complainants in the case. If the CBI finds evidence to support Param Bir Singh's allegations against Anil Deshmukh, an FIR will be lodged against the former home minister of Maharashtra. The agency is also expected to record the statement of Param Bir Singh and other senior officials of the Mumbai Police. It is still unclear whether the agency will interrogate suspended cop Sachin Vaze, who is in NIA custody in connection.
