The government claimed that the CBI, in the FIR, had included the issue of last year's reinstatement of now suspended Mumbai police officer Sachin Waze, and transfers of some other police officers.
Kazi, an assistant police inspector, was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on April 11. He was produced before a holiday court here at the end of his NIA remand on Friday.
During a search of Waze's house in Thane, the National Investigation Agency, which is conducting a probe into the case, had recovered the passport of a man, whose identity has not been revealed.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) arrested assistant police inspector (API) Waze on March 13.
The CBI is carrying out a preliminary inquiry into allegations against Deshmukh levelled by Singh after he was removed from the coveted post of Mumbai Police commissioner.
Deshmukh’s personal assistant Kundan Shinde and personal secretary Sanjeev Palande appeared before the CBI team in connection with its ongoing preliminary enquiry.
Police officer Riyaz Kazi was also seen collecting CCTV footage from Sachin Waze's housing complex in neighbouring Thane, the official said.

His remarks come a day after Waze claimed in his letter that he was approached by one Darshan Ghodawat, who introduced himself as a 'very close circle person' of junior Pawar.
Patil has reportedly claimed that he had met Deshmukh along with other officers to brief him about a raid, but had never met him after that.
Sachin Waze was arrested last month by the National Investigation Agency in the case of an explosives-laden SUV found near industrialist Mukesh Ambani's residence.
Waze in a letter claimed former state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had demanded Rs 2 crore from him to continue his service in the Mumbai police.
Waze had written a letter to the NIA claiming that Maharashtra ministers Anil Deshmukh and Anil Parab asked him to illegitimately collect money for them.
The agency had on Tuesday registered a preliminary enquiry into allegations of bribery against Deshmukh on the orders of the Bombay High Court.
Transport Minister Parab rejected the allegations made by Waze, saying they were incorrect and aimed at maligning his image, and expressed readiness to face any probe.
Waze was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on March 13.
