Bombay, November 25
Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh, found guilty by a Mumbai court, arrived in Mumbai on Thursday to participate in the investigation as directed by the court, an official said.
Singh arrived from Chandigarh, the official said. “He has come to join the investigation with court orders and will cooperate with the investigation,” he added.
“I will join the investigation as directed by the court,” Singh told media upon his arrival.
After leaving the airport, Singh appeared before Unit 11 of the Mumbai Criminal Police, where his statement regarding an extortion case recorded at the Goregaon Police Station here would be recorded, the official said.
The IPS officer, who faces several extortion cases in Maharashtra, told news channels on Wednesday that he was in Chandigarh.
Singh has not reported for work since May this year, following his transfer as Mumbai Police Commissioner and subsequent corruption allegations against Maharashtra’s Home Secretary Anil Deshmukh.
The Supreme Court granted Singh protection from arrest.
He was transferred after the arrest of Mumbai police officer Sachin Waze in the case of an SUV containing explosives found near the house of industrialist Mukesh Ambani “Antilia” and the suspicious death of businessman Mansukh Hiran. PTI
