Bailable warrant issued again against former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh

National Desk: An inquiry commission headed by a retired High Court judge in Maharashtra on Wednesday again issued bailable warrants against former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh for failing to appear before it. Singh had leveled corruption charges against former state home minister Anil Deshmukh and was to appear before the commission in this regard. Special Public Prosecutor of the case Shishir Hire has confirmed the development. In March this year, the Maharashtra government had set up a one-man commission headed by retired judge Kailash Uttamchand Chandiwal to probe Singh's allegations against Deshmukh.

He said that the commission had issued summons to Singh several times asking him to appear, but he did not appear, so the commission had issued a bailable warrant against him on September 7, but due to non-service of the warrant, it was rejected. Now re-released until 6 October. Earlier, the commission had imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 on Singh in June and Rs 25,000 on two occasions last month for not appearing before it.

In a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray in March, days after he was removed from the post of Mumbai Police Commissioner and transferred to the Home Guard, Singh claimed that Deshmukh used to ask police officers to collect money from restaurant and bar owners in Mumbai. Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Deshmukh had resigned as the state home minister in April this year and has also denied the allegations leveled against him. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) are probing the allegations leveled against Deshmukh by the senior IPS officer.

With the blessings of Baba Vishwanath, with the unwavering glory of Maa Ganga, with the unshakable faith of the people of Kashi, the campaign for a vaccine-free vaccine for all is progressing with success.


Modi said that in the long post-independence period, health facilities and health facilities were not given as much attention as the country needed. Those whose governments remained in the country for a long time, instead of fully developing the country's healthcare system, deprived it of facilities. He said that about Rs 5,000 crore projects related to the infrastructure of Kashi have also been inaugurated now. This includes projects related to roads, beauty of Ghats, cleanliness of Ganga ji and Varuna, bridges, parking lots, many facilities in BHU.

Facilities like free medical consultation, free test, free medicine will be available in these centers. Ayushman Bharat Yojana has also provided free treatment to more than 2 crore poor in the hospital. Many problems related to treatment are being solved through Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission. For those who were in the government before us, healthcare has been a source of earning money, scams. Even after seeing the troubles of the poor, he kept running away from them. Today there is a government at the Center and in the state which understands the pain of the poor, downtrodden, oppressed, backward, middle class, all. We are working day and night to improve health facilities in the country.
