Maharashtra CID to quiz Param Bir Singh next week
Mumbai/IBNS: Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh will be questioned by the state crime investigation department (CID) as the agency is probing three separate FIRs against him.
Singh is currently posted as the commandant general of Maharashtra home guards.
He will appear before investigators at CID’s regional office in CBD Belapur, Navi Mumbai, on Tuesday and Wednesday, media reports quoting sources said.
“Three investigation officers of the three cases will separately question Singh next week. The questioning may go on for two-three consecutive days,” a senior CID officer was quoted as saying by The Hindustan Times.
He said they have prepared three separate questionnaires for Singh’s interrogation, which will be supervised by MN Jagtap, superintendent of police, CID, and CID chief Retesh Kumaarr.
One of the three cases was registered against Singh at Kalyan on April 28 on the basis of a complaint by serving inspector Bhimrao Ghadge.
The inspector has alleged that Singh, during his tenure as Thane Police commissioner, put pressure on him to drop corruption charges against three Kalyan-Dombivli Municipal Corporation (KDMC) commissioners and other civic officials, according to reports.
The other two FIRs are being investigated by CID are pertaining to the extortion complaints registered by Bhayander-based developer Shyamsunder Agrawal against Singh and some other police officers.
