IPS officer in Hasan Ali probe on leave: sources
Reports earlier said that the IPS officer was suspended by the Maharashtra govt.

New Delhi: Even as the Enforcement Directorate got three more days to interrogate black money accused Hasan Ali, the probe trail itself has taken a curious turn.

On Monday, PTI reported that the Maharashtra government had suspended senior IPS officer Ashok Deshbhratar who allegedly carried out a "sting operation" on Hasan Ali Khan. The alleged suspension also created a ruckus in the State Assembly.

A preliminary inquiry by the CID concluded that the sting operation CD leaked to the media was "doctored".

However, senior police officials are keeping mum and have refused to comment on the suspension on Monday.

Sources have told CNN-IBN that Deshbhratar has gone on a long leave. In fact, a few days ago, he had apparently written to the Chief Secretary, seeking permission to intervene in the on-going matters in sessions court.

The Supreme Court on Monday granted three days of additional custodial interrogation to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) of Pune stud farm owner Hasan Ali Khan allegedly involved in money laundering activities.
