Strict action of Chandiwal Commission against Parambir Singh; Issued a warrant and fined Rs 50,000

 

The Chandiwal Commission, which is probing allegations of recovery against former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, has issued a bail warrant of Rs 50,000 against former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh. As Parambir Singh is not present before the commission, the hearing has to be postponed. The commission’s counsel Shishir Hiray had said that a non-bailable warrant should be issued against him. The commission on Tuesday issued a bail warrant of Rs 50,000.

The commission was set up by the Maharashtra government in March to probe allegations leveled by Parambir Singh against former state home minister Anil Deshmukh. In a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, Singh had accused Deshmukh of asking Mumbai police officers to collect money from restaurant and bar owners.

The commission directed the Maharashtra Director General of Police to appoint a senior officer to issue the warrant. Earlier, the commission had fined Parambir three times for his absence. After the third absence, Parambir Singh was fined Rs 25,000, which was asked to be deposited in the fund of Maharashtra Chief Minister Kovid 19. And now, for the fourth time, a bail warrant of Rs 50,000 has been issued after his absence.

Earlier, a lookout notice was also issued against Parambir Singh. The commission has now ordered stern action against Parambir Singh. At the last hearing, the warrant was issued if he did not appear before the commission.
