Mumbai, November 25 (Agency)
Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh appeared before the Mumbai Police on Thursday and was questioned for nearly seven hours. Officials said Singh left the crime branch’s Unit-11 office around 6.15 pm. IPS officer Parambir Singh, declared a ‘fugitive’ by a Mumbai court, had appeared before the crime branch to record his statement in the extortion case. Declaring him a fugitive, the Mumbai court had also directed him to join the investigation. Parambir Singh had reached here from Chandigarh. The Supreme Court has given protection to Singh from arrest for the time being.
Significantly, Singh was removed from the post of Mumbai Police Commissioner in March 2021 after the arrest of Mumbai Police officer Sachin Waje in a case registered after explosives were found from a vehicle outside the house of industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s ‘Antilia’.
