New Delhi: Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh, who resurfaced on Wednesday after absconding for 231 days, recorded his statement before the Mumbai Police Crime branch in an extortion case against him, police said on Thursday. “Questions were asked to him only in this case. He hasn’t been called again as of now but has been told that he’ll be called as and when needed, said Mumbai Police.

The case against the former top cop was registered by Bimal Agrawal in Crime branch unit 11 office in Kandivali.

“He has given statements before the crime branch. As per SC order, he will continue to cooperate in the probe,” his lawyer said.

The IPS officer who is facing several extortion cases in Maharashtra had told news channels on November 24 that he was in Chandigarh. Mr. Singh has not reported to work since May this year, after his transfer from the post of Mumbai police commissioner and his subsequent allegations of corruption against then Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh.

He was transferred after Mumbai 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.

Maharashtra Home Minister Dilip Walse Patil on Thursday said he was shocked to know that senior IPS officer Param Bir Singh, who has earlier served as the police commissioner of Mumbai and Thane, should feel threat to his life.
