New Delhi, Feb 20: Former police commissioner Rakesh Maria in his book 'Let Me Say It Now' has revealed that he already had prior received information about the murder of T-series owner Gulshan Kumar but he could not stop the incident.
In his book, Maria said that a source had given information when asked who is going to drop the wicket, the answer was - Abu Salem. According to Maria, the source had said that Salem had made plans. He will attack Gulshan Kumar near the Shiva temple. Maria asked, "Is the news confirmed?" On this, the source said, "Saheb news is absolutely certain."
He has told in his book that after this he called Mahesh Bhatt. Bhatt tells Maria about the fact that Gulshan Kumar often visits the Shiva temple.
Maria has written in the book that he had asked the Mumbai Crime Branch to give protection to Gulshan Kumar. On August 12, 1997, Maria received the news that Gulshan Kumar had been killed. During the investigation, it was found that the responsibility of security of Gulshan was with the Uttar Pradesh Police. Due to this the Mumbai Police had withdrawn its security.
According to Maria, the UP police was guarding Gulshan with complete efficiency, but when the danger was reduced, the vigilance also decreased. Taking advantage of this, Gulshan Kumar was killed.
