Why Param Bir Singh is Transferred
Param Bir Singh showed corona’s cause in 2020 and reinstated Sachin Vaje, a suspended police officer who had also resigned from the Police force in 2007. Sachin Vaje is the main accused in the recent Antalia (Mukesh Ambani Home Bomb Scare) case, and on Saturday, he was also arrested by the NIA.
Param Bir Singh took charge of Mumbai Police Commissioner from Sanjay Barve in January 2020. Param Bir Singh is a 1988 batch IPS officer, and before the commissioner of Mumbai, he has also served in the Anti Corruption Bureau. Param Bir Singh himself was an encounter specialist in the 1990s.
On February 25, when a bomb was found outside Mukesh Ambani’s house in a Scorpio vehicle, the sensation spread throughout the country. Crime Branch and ATS took the case in hand and found out that Mansukh Hiren owns this car. Still, later the body of Mansukh Hiren was also recovered from near Mumbai. Sachin Vaje was spurned in this case by Mansukh’s wife and BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis. Later the case was transferred to NIA. NIA took Sachin Vaje into custody on Saturday based on the evidence. Param Bir Singh was also speculated to be transferred from the Mumbai Commissioner post. Param Bir Singh has been transferred as DG Home Guard.
