Non-Bailable Warrant Against Ex-Mumbai Police Chief Param Bir Singh Cancelled By Thane Court


New Delhi: A Thane court on Friday cancelled the non-bailable warrant against former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh after he appeared before the bench.

While cancelling the non-bailable warrant, the court directed him to cooperate with Thane Police in the investigation. He was asked to furnish a personal bond of Rs 15,000, news agency ANI reported.

This comes after Param Bir Singh on Friday appeared before police officials in Thane in connection with the investigation into an extortion case registered against him there, news agency PTI cited sources as saying.

The Thane Nagar police had registered the case of extortion against the former Mumbai police chief and others based on a complaint lodged by builder and bookie Ketan Tanna (54) in July this year.

In the complaint, Ketan Tanna had alleged that when Param Bir Singh was the police commissioner of Thane between 2018 and 2019, he and other accused had extorted Rs 1.25 crore from him and that he was also threatened of dire consequences. According to the complaint, the accused had also extorted Rs 3 crore from Tanna’s friend Sonu Jalan in a similar manner.

A non-bailable warrant was issued against Param Bir Singh in connection with this case. Apart from him, retired inspector Pradeep Sharma, inspector Rajkumar Kothmire and DCP Deepak Devraj are among the accused in the case.

Two accused have been arrested in the case so far, one of them was given bail by a court a couple of days back, PTI reported.

The former Mumbai Police Commissioner is facing a total of five extortion cases in Maharashtra, two of them in Thane. The Thane police have formed a special investigation team (SIT) to probe these two extortion cases.

Param Bir Singh, who was recently declared an absconder by a court, arrived in Mumbai on Thursday after remaining incommunicado for several months. After his arrival, he was questioned by the Mumbai police’s crime branch for seven hours in a separate extortion case.

He was shunted out as Mumbai’s top cop earlier this year after police officer Sachin Waze was arrested in the case of an SUV with explosives found near industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s house, ‘Antilia’ and the subsequent suspicious death of businessman Mansukh Hiran. The Supreme Court granted Param Bir Singh protection from arrest a few days ago.
