Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh has submitted an application for the cancellation of a Mumbai court order, which had declared him as absconding.

The court order in question had been pasted outside Singh's flat in Juhu on 23 November.

SIT Set Up to Probe Charges Against Singh

Meanwhile, a Special Investigation Team (SIT) has been set up by the Thane Police to investigate a case registered against former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh, as per ANI. A DCP-level officer will probe the case.

Singh on Friday arrived in Thane to submit his statement, the police said.

In addition, the state-appointed Chandiwal Commission, which has been constituted to probe corruption allegations levelled by the former top cop against Anil Deshmukh, also summoned Singh to appear before it on 29 November, ANI reported.



The former Mumbai Police chief is being probed over several cases of extortion in connection with the bomb scare near businessperson Mukesh Ambani's residence Antilia in February this year.

The former police commissioner had appeared before the Crime Branch of the Mumbai Police on Thursday, in connection with the charges against him. He had left the Crime Branch later on the same day, after nearly seven hours of questioning.

"I have joined the investigation (in a case of extortion) today, as per the order of the Supreme Court. I am cooperating in the investigation and I have full faith in the court," Singh was quoted as saying by ANI after the interrogation.
