Former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh’s lawyer had taken objection to the alleged meeting and brought the matter before the Chandiwal commission. It was alleged that Param Bir Singh met Vaze in an adjoining room and talked for some time. Vaze, who was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in connection with the Antilia bomb scare case and the related murder of Thane trader Mansukh Hiran, and is lodged at Taloja jail in Navi Mumbai, had been brought before the commission for cross-examination by lawyers of several parties to the inquiry.
