Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh, surrounded by many allegations, has not got relief from the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court has categorically refused to hear the plea of Parambir Singh, in which IPS officer Singh has sought transfer of all the investigation cases against him to an independent agency outside Maharashtra. Not only this, the Supreme Court has also reprimanded Parambir Singh.
The Supreme Court said that you have been in the police force for 30 years. Now you can’t say you want your investigation out of state. You cannot doubt your own police force. You are a part of Maharashtra cadre and now you don’t have confidence in the functioning of your state? This is a shocking allegation.
In fact, according to the list released on the apex court’s website, Parambir Singh’s plea was heard on Friday before a vacation bench of Justice Hemant Gupta and Justice V Ramasubramaniam. The court considered the petition of Parambir Singh not maintainable. Justice BR Gavai recused himself from hearing the petition on May 18. Earlier he was part of a two-member bench.
Meanwhile, the Maharashtra government on Thursday told the Bombay High Court that it would not arrest former Mumbai Police commissioner Parambir Singh in the case registered under the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act till June 15. Senior advocate Darius Khambata, appearing for the state government, said in his opening statement that the police would not arrest Singh till June 15.
