ABI IMPACT: THE Joint Commissioner of Police, Thane, V. V. Laxami Narayan have initiated an enquiry into a matter inwhich Kalyan police and builders celebrated Mumbai underworld Don Ashwin Naik’s birthday after ABI reported the news.
Speaking to ABI (Akela Bureau of Investigation) Laxami Narayan confirmed that an enquiry has been initiated in the matter. “Matter is serious in nature. I have ordered an enquiry after ABI (abinet.org) published the news,” said Laxami Narayan.
On January 28, 2015 ABI (Akela Bureau of Investigation) published an article under headline “Policemen, Builders, MSEB contractor celebrate underworld Don Ashwin Naik’s birthday, gift Rs.35 lakh.”
According to the information, Babasaheb Yadav, Anant Kadam alias Gotya, Chaudhary, Shyam Shelke, Mukesh Bhanushali, Shashi Gawali, Raju Ujgare and Ajay Singane paid a visit at Ashwin Naik’s Chinchpokli office. Babasaheb Yadav and Anant Kadam are Police Constables, attached to Kolsewadi police station in Kalyan (East). Chaudhary is also a Police Constable, attached to the Thane city police. Shyam Shelke is MSEB contractor and holds a ‘Police Mitra’ identity card. Mukesh Bhanushali is the licensed operator of a government-owned ration shop. The others including Shashi Gawali, Raju Ujgare and Ajay Singane are builders.
They counted the notes sitting at Don’s office and handed over Rs. 35 lakhs to him as gift and got themselves clicked pictures with Ashwin.
ABI (Akela Bureau of Investigation) is in possession of these pictures proving their relations.
Constable Janardan Sanap, who is incharge of passport verification and “Secret Department” at Kolsewadi Police Station is also under the police scanner for having close links with Shyam Shelke. Sanap extorts Rs. 1,000-2,000 on per passport verification. In emergency cases, the figure goes up to Rs.10, 000. On occasions such as weddings, birthday parties, and Ganapati and Durga poojas, he extorts Rs. 1,000-5,000 to allow the usage of loudspeaker. He never issues receipts to applicants.
There is a possibility that these policemen, builders, Shelke and the ration shop licensee are extorting money on Ashwin Naik’s behalf.
‘Ulta Chor Kotwal Ko Daante’
After ABI (abinet.org) published the story, on Thursday, Shyam Shelke approached Kolsewadi police station accompanied with an agent and registered a bogus complaint (NC) against Akela (ABI’s Editor-Investigation).
