Non-bailable warrant issued against Param Bir Singh

A non-bailable warrant has been issued against former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh in connection with an extortion case registered against him. This is the third non-bailable warrant issued against Param Bir Singh..

The latest warrant is in connection with the extortion case registered at the Marine Drive police station in which Maharashtra Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has arrested Police Inspector Nandkumar Gopale and Asha Korke on Tuesday. The FIR names Singh and seven others, including five police officers.


Gopale was currently posted at the Khandala police training centre, and Korke in the Naigaon local arms unit. The duo was arrested following a complaint filed by real estate developer Shyamsunder Agrawal at the Marine Drive police station on July 22 this year on the charge of extortion. 

On Tuesday, the two accused were produced before additional chief metropolitan magistrate R M Nerlikar. The court remanded them in the CID’s custody for further probe into the case.

The CID was also entrusted with the investigation of a case registered against Shyamsunder Agrawal under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crimes Act (MCOCA) at Juhu police station for his alleged links with underworld gangster Chhota Shakeel.

Agrawal had alleged that based on this “false” case, Param Bir Singh and other police officers extorted money from him at the behest of his former business partner Sanjay Punamiya, as per the FIR.
