As reported by news agency PTI, vaze claimed that Anil Deshmukh had demanded Rs 2 crore from him for reinstatement to the Mumbai Police Service.

“I was duly reinstated into service on 6 June 2020. Immediately after my reinstatement there were some agitators to restore…. Apparently, then Sharad Pawar had ordered me to be placed under suspension again … At that time the then Home Minister Sir also told me that he would convince Pawar Saheb and he asked me for this purpose for 2 crores of rupees. “Four-page handwritten letter.”
Waze claimed in his letter that Minister Anil Parab had asked him in January 2021 to conduct an inquiry against the fraudulent contractors listed in the BMC and collected at least Rs 2 crore from around 50 such contractors.
