Former Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh, now suspended, failed to appear before the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) here on Tuesday to record his statement in connection with an open enquiry being conducted against him on a complaint lodged by a police inspector, an official said.

“Singh, who was suspended from service after multiple extortion cases were registered against him, was summoned to appear before the ACB on Tuesday, but he hasn’t appeared till noon,” he said.

According to him, Singh was earlier summoned to appear before the ACB on January 10, but he had cited pendency of hearing in the Supreme Court as the reason for not turning up.

“Recently, our probe team went to his Mumbai residence and gave the notice of appearance before the ACB,” the official said, adding that the notice was received by Singh’s cook.
