Rakesh Maria replaced by Ahmed Javed as the Mumbai police commissioner
In a move which is surprising, today Mumbai police commissioner, Rakesh Maria was replaced by DGP-rank officer Ahmed Javed as the new Mumbai police commissioner. The Devendra Fadnavis led government of Maharashtra clarified that Maria's promotion was due later this month, but he had been shifted now so that the new commissioner could settle into his job before the upcoming Ganpati festival.

But, the move has sparked speculations, as Maria himself was involved with interrogating Indrani Mukerjea, the prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case. This high profile case had come to light just two weeks back and has been making headlines ever since, as Indrani Mukerjea is the wife of former Star India CEO, Peter Mukerjea. Indrani is accused of murdering her 24-year old daughter, Sheena Bora.

Rakesh Maria has now been promoted to the post of Director General (Home Guards). Ahmed Javed will serve as commissioner till January 2016, and then a new commissioner will replace him.
