Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh on Monday informed the Supreme Court that he is very much in the country and not absconding. “I am very much in the country but hiding as I face threat to my life,” Param Bir Singh informed the apex court via his lawyer. His advocate said that Singh is currently in hiding as he faces threat to his life from Mumbai Police.

A magistrate court in Bombay on Wednesday declared Singh a “proclaimed offender” in an extortion case registered against him and some other police officers in the city. Singh had last attended his office in May this year after which he went on leave. The state police had told the Bombay High Court last month that his whereabouts were not known.
