Mumbai: Maharashtra Home Minister R R Patil has sought a report from the police department about a top police officer allegedly attending a party hoisted by certain gangsters on Christmas eve.
Patil was replying to queries from reporters about a leading tabloid purportedly showing photographs of an Assistant Commissioner of Police partying with alleged Chhota Rajan gang members at a private club in suburban Chembur.
The English tabloid identified the ACP as Prakash Wani.
The party was reportedly organised to celebrate Christmas and release of some key gang members from jail.
Rajan's close aide D K Rao was the chief guest of the party.
Rao was released after 13 years of imprisonment recently when he was acquitted in 30 criminal cases, the tabloid said.
Grainy footage of the party apparently filmed with a mobile phone were aired by some TV channels.
