In a clear jab at former Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray stated on Saturday that there is a case in the state where the complainant has gone missing. Thackeray made the remarks at the opening of two wings of the annexe building at the Bombay High Court's Aurangabad bench. On occasion, Chief Justice of India N V Ramana, Union Law Minister Kiren Rijuju, Supreme Court judge Justice D Y Chandrachud, and others were present.

Speaking at the ceremony, Thackeray stated that Justice D Y Chandrachud mentioned (during his remarks at the event) that a case has been waiting in Maharashtra since 1958 since the culprit has fled. He went on to say that we have a situation in which the complainant is gone. He went on to say that the complainant filed a report with significant claims but that he is now gone, and we have no idea where he is.

Although he did not identify anyone, the chief minister's statements appeared to be directed at the senior IPS officer who had levelled corruption charges against former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh. During a hearing on a Singh-related petition a few days ago, the Maharashtra government informed the Bombay High Court that his whereabouts were unknown.

In a letter to the chief minister earlier this year, Singh alleged that Deshmukh was fired as Mumbai police commissioner, Deshmukh used to order police officers to collect money from restaurants and bars in Mumbai. Deshmukh, an NCP politician, resigned as a minister in April of this year, despite denying the charges levelled against him.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) investigate Singh's charges against Deshmukh.
