Absconding Ex-Top Cop Param Bir Singh Appears Before Police

0 6

Mumbai: Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh on Thursday appeared before the city police’s Crime Branch Unit 11 office.

Upon reaching the Mumbai airport earlier today, the IPS officer had said that he will join the investigation as directed by the court.

On Monday, the Supreme Court granted the former Mumbai top cop protection from arrest. He was asked to join investigations into extortion charges against him.

On November 17, a Mumbai court said Mr Singh could be declared an “absconder”, which means he could be treated as a fugitive from the law.

Earlier this week, a notice to that effect was pasted outside his home in the city’s Juhu area.

Param Bir Singh was transferred after Mumbai police officer Sachin Waze was arrested in connection with the Mukesh Ambani bomb scare case (an SUV filled with explosives was found near Mr Ambani’s home) and the subsequent suspicious death of businessman Mansukh Hiran.

Mr Waze was known to be close to Param Bir Singh and had direct access to him, despite being just an Assistant Police Inspector.
