Amitabh Gupta is an IPS officer of Maharashtra cadre. He is a bright and upright officer. Unfortunately, he has also been mired in some serious controversies. Only recently, he was found to have allowed the scam tainted Wadhavan family to go out of Mumbai on passes issued by him. He has now been absolved with all charges and the Government of Maharashtra has again appointed him at crucial position by making him the Commissioner of Pune.
Amitabh Gupta has also maintained strong connection with politicians and businessmen. He has friends across the party lines from Congress to Shiv Sena to BJP. He has deep connection with top notch NCP leaders.
