Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], December 2 (ANI): Mumbai's Esplanade Court on Thursday 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.

Singh has filed an application for the cancellation of a court proclamation order against him in Esplanade Magistrate's court, which declared him "absconding".

Singh, who has been declared "absconding" by a Mumbai court, had arrived at Crime Branch unit 11 office in Kandivali to join the investigation of the Goregaon extortion case.

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. (ANI)
