Mumbai: While his impasse in a Sheena Bora murder box review competence have been a final straw, mixed factors are said to have contributed to a remarkable send of Rakesh Maria from a post of Mumbai military commissioner. Maria was eliminated to a post of Director General (Home Guards) on Tuesday.
While a Maharashtra supervision has pronounced that a changes have been finished deliberation a law and sequence situation ahead of a arriving festival deteriorate in a state, there are many theories for a remarkable transfer. Many in military force trust Maria’s send is a outcome of a purpose he played in the investigations in a Sheena Bora murder case.
“His send is as puzzling as a Sheena Bora murder case. But, it appears that a review into a box over final few weeks competence be one of a reasons that could have played a purpose in a transfer,” a comparison military officer said.
The central pronounced that the posting given to Maria is routinely given as a punishment posting.
Maria has been replaced as Mumbai Police commissioner by comparison IPS officer Javed Ahmed, who took assign on Tuesday.
While a post of Mumbai military commissioner is to be reason by an central of Additional Director General rank, a state supervision has upgraded a post so that an central of Director General arrange can reason a post. Thi was finished in sequence to transparent a trail for Ahmed’s appointment and a comparison military official will get around 5 months in bureau before he retires in Jan 2016.
Sources in state secretariat, Mantralaya, said Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis was unfortunate with what he believed was Maria’s extreme involvement in a review into the Sheena Bora murder. A few days ago, Fadnavis had pronounced that military should compensate as much attention to other cases that are not in a media glare.
Officials pronounced that Maria was to be eliminated after a debate over his assembly with former IPL arch Lalit Modi in London erupted progressing this year. However, a BJP was in a fix, since they believed that if they had taken movement opposite Maria there competence have been calls to take identical stairs against External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje over their links with a former IPL chairman.
The BJP carrying motionless to behind Swaraj and Raje, motionless not to take any movement opposite Maria as well, a supervision central said.
Another comparison supervision central pronounced Maria was due for graduation and a military officer had requested for a side posting. Hence has been given a posting as Director General of home guards, a central said.
However, Maria hasn’t been on a best terms with a arch minister. It began in Feb this year, when Maria privileged a offer changed by a Shiv Sena seeking to concede eateries, pubs, bars and restaurants to sojourn open all night. Maria privileged a proposal, allegedly but consulting Fadnavis.
Maria has also been perceived to be tighten to Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) arch Sharad Pawar and that was also a cause that went opposite him once the BJP supervision came to energy in a state.
“The remarkable movement of a supervision has valid that Sheena Bora murder box is certainly some-more than a murder case. The supposed graduation of Maria is finished underneath some arrange of pressure,” pronounced Nawab Malik, inhabitant orator of NCP.
Anther speculation doing a rounds is that Ahmed has been brought in place of Maria in an try to enclose any ill will a Muslim village competence have opposite a Fadnavis government. Muslims in a state have been unfortunate with a state government’s preference to anathema a beef in Maharashtra. Many in a village are also viewed to be unfortunate over the unresolved of 1993 sequence blasts convict, Yakub Menon.
While Maria has remained silent on a transfer, Javed, after holding assign on Tuesday, pronounced a Sheena Bora murder box will be monitored in a veteran manner and that there is range for improvement.
