New Delhi: Maharashtra government has suspended former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh with immediate effect. Orders have been sent to Maharashtra DGP to serve the suspension on Parambir and another DCP rank officer.

During the suspension period, Singh shall be paid subsistence allowance, dearness allowance and other allowances as admissible under Rule 4 of All India Services (Discipline and Appeal) Rules, 1969, on the production of certificate that he is not engaged in any other employment, said the Maharashtra government.

The headquarter of Singh, during this period, shall be the office of the Director-General of Police, Maharashtra State, Mumbai and he shall not leave the said headquarter without obtaining the permission of the Director-General of Police, Maharashtra State, added the government.

Earlier on Thursday, Mumbai’s Esplanade Court cancelled its proclamation offender order against former police commissioner Param Bir Singh in the Marine Drive extortion case.

He was declared absconded on November 17.

Six cases of corruption and extortion were filed against Singh after he wrote a letter to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray levelling corruption and misconduct against the then Home Minister and senior NCP leader Anil Deshmukh.

Singh, a 1988-batch IPS officer, was removed from the post of Mumbai Police Commissioner on March 17 and was made the General Commander of Maharashtra State Home Guard after he levelled allegations against Deshmukh.
