Ex-Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh has gone missing for days. This occurred after a lookout notice was issued against him concerning an extortion case. According to a report by CNN-News18, Singh went missing from his Chandigarh apartment, while his phone switched off.
The Thane police filed a lookout notice against the senior Maharashtra IPS officer in an extortion case reported at the Thane Nagar Police Station. Such notice is issued to restrict a person from leaving the country.
Param Bir Singh, who used to serve as the Thane Police Commissioner, is not just the official to faced the lookout notice but much other police personnel received in some extortion cases.
Former Deputy Commissioner of Police Dipak Deoraj, Assistant Commissioner of Police Nivrurti Kadam, ex-Anti Extortion Cell (AEC) senior Inspector Pradeep Sharma and Inspector Rajkumar Kothmire, had undergone this lookout notice according to a PTI report.
Singh alleged that Anil Deshmukh while he was a home minister, had instructed the Mumbai Police officer Sachin Waze and other police personnel to take Rs 100 crore per month from bars in Mumbai.
In July, Mumbai Police created a seven-member Special Investigation Team (SIT) led by a Deputy Commissioner of Police-level officer to investigate the corruption charges against Singh and others mentioned in the case.
