The troubles of former Mumbai Police chief Parambir Singh, surrounded by allegations of corruption, are not taking the name of lessening. The Chandiwal Judicial Commission set up by the Maharashtra government on Wednesday issued fresh summons to former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh and asked him to appear before the panel by October 6. Earlier this month, the commission had issued a bailable warrant against Parambir Singh in an alleged corruption case of Rs 100 crore.

The counsel for the panel was quoted by news agency ANI as saying that several summons have been issued to Parambir Singh in the last few months. But Parambir Singh has not yet appeared before the panel. Let us inform that Singh had made allegations of corruption against former state home minister Anil Deshmukh, for which the Maharashtra government has constituted a commission to investigate.

In the extortion case, Parambir Singh had claimed that Anil Deshmukh had asked suspended Mumbai police officer Sachin Wajhe to collect ₹100 crore every month. Let us inform that before issuing the bailable warrant, the commission had imposed a fine on Parambir Singh thrice for not appearing. The commission had imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 in June and Rs 25,000 twice last month. The commission issued a bailable warrant of Rs 50,000 against Parambir Singh.

Last week, the Bombay High Court had considered a petition filed by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh to quash the two preliminary investigations initiated against him by the Maharashtra government. Dismissing the plea, a division bench of Justices SS Shinde and NJ Jamdar said that the relief sought by Singh can be decided by the Central Administrative Tribunal as it is a matter of service.

On Wednesday, the Uddhav Thackeray government gave its nod to the State Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) for another probe against Parambir Singh. The ACB is conducting a separate inquiry against Singh on a complaint by Police Inspector Anoop Dange, who alleged that Singh had demanded ₹2 crore to reinstate him through a relative during his suspension last year.
