It is noteworthy that former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh was recently declared a ‘fugitive’ by the Magistrate Court. This order of the court was pasted outside his Juhu residence on Tuesday. “Parambir Singh is required to appear before the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, Esplanade Court, Mumbai or the Inquiry Officer, to respond to the said complaint within 30 days,” the court order said.
Please tell that Parambir Singh was missing for a long time. In the cases of recovery, besides the investigating agencies, summons were also sent to Parambir Singh to appear from the court. Apart from summons, bailable and non-bailable warrants of arrest were also issued against him for the last few months. Despite this, the former police commissioner did not appear. After this it was said that Parambir Singh had left the country. However, in the meantime Parambir Singh had informed the Supreme Court that he was in the country.
