Mumbai Police registers FIR against Congress leader Kripashankar Singh
Mumbai:  The Mumbai Police has registered a First Information Report (FIR) against former Mumbai Congress chief Kripashankar Singh in connection with a disproportionate assets case.

The Bombay High Court had last week directed the police to file an FIR against Mr Singh for "criminal misconduct" under the Prevention of Corruption Act. He resigned from the post of the soon after.

A division bench of Chief Justice Mohit Shah and Justice Roshan Dalvi had further directed Mumbai Police Commissioner Arup Patnaik to collect documentary evidence regarding all movable and immovable properties of Mr Singh and his family, including his wife, son and daughter-in-law, who, the court said, will also be prosecuted for aiding in the crime.

"The immovable properties of Kripashankar shall be attached. We do not want to pass any directions regarding the bank accounts of the respondents as it is alleged that the money might have been washed out," the court said.

The court was hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by activist Sanjay Tiwari, who alleged that the Congress MLA had amassed wealth disproportionate to his known sources of income.

The court, while keeping the PIL pending, directed the Commissioner of Police to file a compliance report on April 19.
