Went. A bench of Justices Hemant Gupta and V. Ramasubramaniam told the counsel representing Singh, “Those whose houses are of glass, do not throw stones at others”.
The bench told senior advocate Mahesh Jethmalani, representing Singh, “You are in the police force for 30 years. Now you cannot say that you want your probe outside the state. You should not doubt your force.” “
Singh had said in his allegations that the then Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had given a target of recovery of Rs 100 crore every month to the top police officers. In his petition, he claimed that Deshmukh had given him a target of depositing Rs 100 crore every month through various means including corruption in police postings or transfers.

Jethmalani spoke of political pressure on the officials probing the cases against Singh, but the top court ultimately decided to dismiss the petition.
