The lawmaker is said to have penned a two-page letter to PM Narendra Modi seeking his intervention.

‘’The Mumbai Police machinery was set in motion for acts going beyond inquest and the activities that were carried out under directions conveyed by an invisible force through Param Bir Singh and Abhishek Trimukhe. Mumbai Police had affected seizure of laptop, mobile, had traced the accesses made by SSR on the internet prior to his death, had interrogated persons who could never have been a part of any inquiry by way of inquest,’’ the BJP MLA was quoted as saying.

The lawmaker also hinted that allowing the cops to continue in service will affect other colleagues and lower-ranking officials in this connection and allow them to depose the truth.
