Mumbai: Mumbai’s high-profile police commissioner Rakesh Maria has been promoted and transferred as director general (DG) of police (home guards), the state government said on Tuesday.

Maria will be replaced by Ahmed Javed, who is currently DG (home guards), with immediate effect. The chief minister signed the transfer orders on Monday before he left for a trip to Japan.

Maria is currently leading the investigation into the Sheena Bora investigation case. He is best known for his work as a lead investigator in the 1993 Mumbai bomb blast case in his role as deputy commissioner of crime branch. Yakub Memon, one of the convicted in the case, was hanged on 30 July. Maria was personally overseeing security arrangements surrounding Memon’s funeral in Mumbai to avoid any law and order problems.

Maria, however, courted controversy recently when it was revealed that he met former Indian Premier League (IPL) commissioner Lalit Modi in London last year where he had gone to attend an Interpol meeting. Modi is wanted by authorities for alleged violations of the Foreign Exchange Management Act during his stint as a IPL commissioner.
