Parmar had shot himself dead on October 7, 2015. He had left behind a suicide note blaming some politicians for mental harassment and demanding payoffs. After forensic tests on the builder’s note, in which he had struck out the names of politicians after mentioning them, the police had named four corporators — Najib Mulla and Hanumant Jagdale (both NCP), Vikrant Chavan (Congress), and Sudhakar Chavan (now Independent, formerly MNS) as accused in the case. The four corporators were then charged with abetment of suicide, criminal misconduct and bribery under sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Prevention of Corruption Act. They are currently out on bail.

The UD directive of March 10 asked the Thane municipality to act against the corporators. “The corporators’ conduct is a disgrace to the position of a corporator. They have misused their posts for undue benefits,” said the communication signed by Deputy Secretary Sudhakar Shinde. The department used provisions under Section 13 of the Maharashtra Municipal Corporation Act, 1949, which allows the government to remove a corporator found guilty of any misconduct.
