Former Mumbai CP files anticipatory bail plea in MPSC case
Mumbai, Mar 27 (UNI) Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Shrikant Bapat, fearing arrest in the multi-crore MPSC (Maharashtra Public Service Commission) examination scam of 1999, today moved the Sessions Court for anticipatory bail.
Mr Bapat was summoned today by Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Sudhakar Poojari, the investigating officer (IO) in the MPSC scam case, for questioning at the anti-corruption bureau (ACB) office at Worli.
However, Mr Bapat, instead of visiting the ACB office, filed his anticipatory bail application, which came up before Additional Sessions Judge P N Deshmukh, who adjourned the matter for Wednesday with a direction to the prosecution to file its reply.
Mr Bapat, who was a member of Commission between 1994 and 1999, is alleged to have played a role in the recruitment of the three Lohar brothers as Deputy Superintendents of Police (DySPs).
