Param Bir Singh was forced to take back complaint against Anil Deshmukh, claims his lawyer

The apex court had on 22 November granted Param Bir Singh interim protection from arrest and directed him to join the investigation

Former Commissioner Param Bir Singh’s lawyer says that his client was forced to take back his corruption complaint against NCP leader and former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.

Advocate Puneet Bali, who is representing Param Bir Singh in the Supreme Court, alleged that his client was under pressure to take back his complaint against Deshmukh. Bali said that the former Police Commissioner had appealed in Bombay High Court over victimisation after he wrote to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Bali said, “Former CP Parambir Singh has appealed to the court that he is being victimised since he has written to CBI. Sanjay Pandey told him that if he takes back the complaint against the then home minister then things will settle for him.”

“He was told if he did not do it, then he will face cases. So listening to our detailed arguments, Supreme Court has given notice to CBI and and provided interim protection to him from arrest,” he said, according to ANI.

The apex court had on 22 November granted Param Bir Singh interim protection from arrest and directed him to join the investigation. A Bench headed by Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul asked Singh to join the investigation and issued notices to the government and CBI on Singh’s plea. 

The apex court now posted the case for hearing on 6 December. 

Six cases of corruption and were filed against Singh after he wrote a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray levelling corruption and misconduct against the then Home Minister and senior NCP leader Anil Deshmukh.

Param Bir Singh, a 1988-batch IPS officer, was removed from the post of commissioner on 17 March and was made the commander of State Home Guard after he made allegations against Deshmukh.
