Former Mumbai Police Commissioner, Param Bir Singh, who is facing extortion charges in several cases in Maharashtra, was suspended by the Maharashtra government on Thursday, 2 December.
Orders have reportedly been sent to the Maharashtra’s Director General of Police (DGP) to suspend Param Bir Singh and another DCP rank officer.
Another officer, DCP Parag Manere, has also been suspended along with Parambir Singh. Manere was also accused in a criminal case, reported ANI.
Meanwhile, PTI quoted an unnamed official as saying that Singh suspended for “irregularities and lapses”.
As per the Maharashtra Government's order of Singh's suspension:
During the period of his suspension, Param Bir Singh shall be paid subsistence allowance, dearness allowance and other allowances as admissible under Rule 4 of All India Services (Discipline and Appeal) Rules, 1969. This, however, will only get on the production of certificate stating that he is not engaged in any other employment.
During the period of his suspension, the headquarter of Singh shall be office of Director General of Police (DGP), Maharashtra State, Mumbai. Param Bir Singh is not permitted to leave the said headquarter without obtaining the permission of the DGP.
