Param Bir Singh: I am in Chandigarh, will visit Mumbai soon

The controversial police officer appeared on Telegram in the evening of 24 November, but later deleted his account from the social messaging app

Within 48 hours of the Supreme Court granting former city police chief Param Bir Singh protection from arrest, he said he was in Chandigarh and would visit Mumbai soon.

The IPS officer, who is facing four extortion cases in Maharashtra and has been declared an absconder by a court, told television news channels that he was in Chandigarh and would soon decide his next course of action. Singh on 24 November evening also appeared on Telegram, but later deleted his account from the social messaging app. He said that he would be visiting Mumbai soon.

Param Bir Singh has not reported to his office since May this year — after his transfer in March from the post of Mumbai police commissioner and the surfacing of allegations of subsequently against then Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.

Meanwhile, the state law-enforcing agencies are not in a hurry to record his statement in the extortion cases registered against him in Mumbai and Thane in view of the Supreme Court order. “The Supreme Court has asked Parambir Singh to join the probe and has posted the hearing to 6 December. We had a preliminary discussion on the SC order with legal experts. We are not in a hurry, we will not take any decision in haste. We do not want to invite the SC’s ire. Instead, we will wait till December 6 to seek clarification on the order,” a senior IPS officer said.

The IPS officer said so far, four cases of extortion have been registered against Param Bir Singh. In certain cases, a non-bailable warrant has been issued as well while a court has declared him a proclaimed offender. “The Supreme Court has given a blanket order not to arrest him, therefore we will seek clarification from the apex court on 6 December,” he said.
