Exclusive | Is Param Bir Singh in Chandigarh?

During the proceeding of the one-member Justice (retired) Kailas Uttamchand Chandiwal commission in Mumbai, senior counsel Abhinav Chandrachud and Asif Lampwala appeared for former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh and filed an affidavit with a power of attorney made by Singh.

The power of attorney is made in Chandigarh and states that a person named Mahesh Panchal has been given the authority to represent Param Bir Singh at the commission. The affidavit further states that Singh has no evidence to lead or cross examine anyone.

“Param Bir Singh does not intend to make any submissions before the committee,” says the affidavit.

It says, “Since all that was required to be disclosed had been disclosed by Param Bir Singh to the chief minister and the Supreme Court of India has taken note of the same, he has nothing more to add than what has been stated in his letter dated 20.03.2021 addressed to chief minister.”

Singh had shot off a letter to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray in March this year levelling allegations of corruption against then state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh. It was after this that the Chandiwal commission was set up by Maharashtra government and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) too began probe against Deshmukh.

However, during the last few hearings, in spite of being summoned, Param Bir Singh had not appeared before the commission. Subsequently, the commission had issued a bailable warrant against him. But the bailable warrant could not be executed as Param Bir Singh could not be located.

Param Bir Singh, on the other hand, has been sighting medical reasons for not being able to appear before the commission.

During the hearing of the commission on Friday, Chandrachud requested the court to cancel the bailable warrant which was opposed by Anita Castallino, the counsel who represented Anil Deshmukh.

Castallino argued that the non-bailable warrants (NBW) be issued against Param Bir Singh. However, the court refused to concede to this request and asked everyone to file a reply to Chandrachud’s request.

Castellino also sought that the notary who made the power of attorney should be examined by court. Lawyer Sairuchita Chowdhary, who appeared for Sanjeev Palande Deshmukh’s private secretary, said, “I have had a look at the power of attorney, it is not in the right format. So, the notary should be examined.”

However, the commission took not of the affidavit filed by Param Bir Singh and decided to move on to other witnesses. In a related development, sacked Mumbai cop Sachin Vaze has been summoned to appear before the commission on October 28.

The allegations levelled by Param Bir Singh was that Vaze and another officer — both being his his subordinates — had told him that Anil Deshmukh had asked them to extort money from various businesses and a target of Rs 100 crore was fixed for them.

However, Param Bir Singh has been untraceable for the past one month with investigating agencies wondering if he has fled India. But the latest affidavit fuels speculation: Is Param Bir Singh in Chandigarh?
