Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh appears before Thane Police to join investigation in extortion case

Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh on Friday appeared before police officials in neighboring Thane in connection with the investigation into the extortion case registered against him, sources said. He told that Singh reached Thane Nagar police station along with his lawyer at around 10.30 am.

Sources said the investigation team may record their statements, with Zonal DCP Avinash Ambure present at the police station.

Thane police had in July this year registered a case of extortion against Singh and 28 others, including six police officers, based on a complaint by builder Ketan Tanna. A non-bailable warrant was issued against Singh in the case.

Singh, who was recently declared a fugitive by a court, arrived in Mumbai on Thursday after abstaining from talks for several months. After his arrival, the Crime Branch of Mumbai Police interrogated him for seven hours in a separate case of extortion.

Singh is facing a total of five extortion cases in Maharashtra.

He was appointed as Mumbai’s top police officer earlier this year after police officer Sachin Vaze was arrested in connection with an SUV carrying explosives and the subsequent suspicious death of businessman Mansukh Hiran near ‘Antilia’, the home of industrialist Mukesh Ambani. was removed. The Supreme Court had granted protection from arrest to Singh a few days back.
