A CBI team landed in Mumbai and collected relevant documents and initiated a preliminary probe. The Bombay High Court had ordered the CBI probe against Deshmukh, following allegations of corruption made against him by former Mumbai Police Commissioner, Param Bir Singh.

"The CBI has registered a PE in the respect of the Bombay High Court order dated April 5, 2021," CBI spokesperson RC Joshi said.

A bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice G S Kulkarni said this was an "extraordinary" and "unprecedented" case that warranted an independent inquiry.

The court said since the state government had already ordered for a probe by a high-level committee into the matter, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) need not immediately register an FIR in the case.
