Former IPS officer and BJP’s candidate from Debra, Bharati Ghosh, is the richest among candidates in fray in the second phase of Bengal polls, says a report released by the West Bengal Election Watch, a civil society group. Ghosh has declared assets worth more than Rs 19.21 crore. Ghosh, once known for her proximity to chief minister Mamata Banerjee, switched to the BJP in February 2019.

The former Commissioner of Police, Parambir Singh has made false allegations in order to save himself as the involvement of Sachin Waze in Mukesh Ambani and Mansukh Hiren’s case is becoming clearer from the investigation carried out so far and threads are leading to Mr Singh as well.
Maharashtra government on Wednesday transferred Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh amid controversy over an explosives-laden SUV found near industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s residence and the subsequent arrest of city police officer Sachin Waze. This is the biggest fallout so far of a snowballing investigation against Mumbai police officer Sachin Waze, who was arrested last week by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in connection with a car with explosives found near the home of Mukesh Ambani, India’s richest man. The announcement was made by state home minister Anil Deshmukh, who had met chief minister Uddhav Thackeray earlier in the day. Deshmukh tweeted that Rajnish Seth, an IPS officer of 1988 batch, will replace Nagrale.
It’s not the Failure of Police, it’s the Failure of the Government – Devendra Fadnavis on Uddhav Thackeray-led State Government
Is there any pressure on ATS? Doubts arise because the action that should have been there is not seen from their side. The NIA should probe this. It’s not the failure of police, it’s the failure of the government. Because it was this government that appointed Waze at the top post, despite knowing his past. It shows there were some compulsions. The way the Chief Minister defended him, the ministers defended him… there should be a proper investigation.
(Varun) Sardesai contacted Vaze several times and demanded a share in the extortion money – Nitesh Narayan Rane

Vaze had threatened the bookies, who were operating from various hotels or flats, of action if they did not pay him. The total amount demanded by Vaze was 150 crore. I demand that NIA should interrogate Sardesai and probe the call records between him and Vaze. It will help the officers reach more details of the case that they are probing.
Since Sachin Waze had arrested Arnab Goswami, he was on the Hit-List of the BJP & Centre – Shiv Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamana’
Mumbai Police officer Sachin Waze, who is currently implicated in a case of a car bomb scare at industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s residence Antila, had once arrested journalist Arnab Goswami in the Anvay Naik suicide case and is now being charged by the NIA, Maharashtra’s ruling party Shiv Sen has alleged. An editorial in the Shiv Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ said that it is surprising that when the investigative capabilities and bravery of the Maharashtra Police are being acknowledged around the world, Waze is being charged by the NIA. It went on to add that since Waze had arrested journalist Arnab Goswami in the Anvay Naik suicide case, he was on the “hit-list of the BJP and the Centre”.
Shiv Sena has attacked the central government over the arrest of Sachin Vaze. In the party’s mouthpiece Saamana, the Shiv Sena has raised questions about the action of central investigative agencies and termed it as retaliation. Saamana said that the Maharashtra government transferred Vaze and handed over the investigation of the entire case to the state’s Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS). While the investigation was going on, the Centre sent the NIA to investigate. It accused central govt of interfering in cases belonging to Maharashtra.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Saturday arrested Mumbai police officer Sachin Vaze, 49, for the alleged conspiracy to plant an explosive-laden sports utility vehicle near the residence of billionaire industrialist Mukesh Ambani on February 25, a top official of the federal probe agency said.

I feel most of the country is sort of going through Emergency – Former Solicitor General & Senior Advocate Mohan Parasaran on Arnab Goswami’s arrest by Maharashtra Police
I feel most of the country is sort of going through Emergency. And unfortunately, the courts have also not been so proactive as it used to be, in the manner of securing the personal liberty of citizens. People who are above 80 are being arrested as if they are against the country, as if they are doing treason, they are people of eminence.
If someone is arrested under Section 306 (abetment to suicide) and 307 (attempt to murder) and the BJP wants to protest against it, they may do so as everyone has that right in democracy. But, I can ensure that injustice won’t be done to anyone. Police can take action if they have evidence against anyone.

What Mumbai Police has done with Pradeep Bhandari of is totally unacceptable. It is a violation of law and amounts to a mockery of the judicial process. Pradeep had secured anticipatory bail. Yet he was detained for close to 8 hours, his phones seized.
If the TRP scam has indeed occurred, then it is wrong and should be investigated. But the name of one surfaces in the complaint, charges are established against the other, what is this? What Mumbai Police is doing, no one will endorse this. The Editors Guild and everyone else has opposed this. I feel that persecuting journalism in such a manner for political interests is wrong.

In our democracy governments do change and will change and when this happens they (police) won’t have the same authority – BJP Vice-President Jay Panda
In the meantime, what the state government seems to have done is withdrawn the general consent for CBI investigations. Now, this sounds very fishy, only somebody that has something to hide would want the CBI not to come and investigate when there is due cause for it. This can only be an attempt to slow down the process, requiring the reach time if it goes to the courts. The police ought to remember that they are an all India service. If they behave in a manner which seems that they are working for regional government, in our democracy governments do change and will change and when this happens they (police) won’t have the same authority to deal with. They should keep that in mind.
