The controversy over former police commissioner Hasan Gafoor’s allegations against his colleagues seems to be unabating.
Leader of Opposition Eknath Khadse has now demanded a probe into Gafoor’s allegations. “The government should conduct a probe into the allegations by former police commissioner Hasan Gafoor,” Khadse said.
Gafoor, in an interview to a news magazine, alleged to have said that four senior police officers refused to be on the ground to take on the terrorists.
Khadse blamed the state government and the home minister for groupism in the police machinery. “There is a growing factionalism in the city police which has the blessings of the state government,” he added.
Khadse said he had raised these issues during the last winter session but had got no reply from the government. “The government should make the Ram Pradhan Committee report public to clarify the picture and let people know what actually transpired during the incident,” Khadse said.
Khadse also took a swipe at the Democratic Front government, which brought back R.R. Patil as home minister, a year after he stepped down from the post after the 26/11 attacks.
“Is the moral responsibility over within 10 months?” he asked.
