Former Top Cop Param Bir Singh Says He’s In India; Know What Supreme Court Said

New Delhi: Former Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh, who is missing since October, was granted protection from arrest by the Supreme Court. The top court asked him to join investigations into extortion charges levelled against him. His lawyer had said he is “not absconding” and is in India.

“The officer shall join investigation. But will not be arrested,” said the Supreme Court. The court last week had refused to grant him any such protection, asking him sternly to first reveal his whereabouts.

Param Bir Singh “does not want to abscond and does not want to run anywhere” but faces a life threat, his lawyer told the court.

“It should not appear to the court that I am afraid. I have full faith in the system. I am ready to appear before a CBI Court. I am being hounded. There are six cases against me. I am suffering. Please grant me protection. I was the senior-most police officer and I am not going to run anywhere,” pleaded Singh.

According to Singh’s lawyer, the “moment he touches the land in Maharashtra he faces a threat from the Mumbai Police.”

“There are people like bookies and others who indulged in illegal activities and have filed FIRs against him,” his lawyer claimed.

The apex court questioned how a former police chief could feel threatened by a force of which he was a leader. “If the former police commissioner of Mumbai says that he faces a threat from the Mumbai Police then what kind of message does it send,” asked Justice SK Kaul.

Singh is accused of at least four extortion cases and so far, reports had said that he may have fled the country.
