The Maharashtra Home Ministry has proposed declaring former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh as a fugitive. The Home Ministry informed the Intelligence Bureau that the IPS officer was not traced and sought the help of a central agency to track him down.

According to Home Ministry officials, the legal process to declare Parambir Singh a fugitive has begun. The department sought legal opinion to streamline the proposal in compliance with legal procedures. The state government has already proposed to suspend the officer for missing from May this year. The Home Department has also launched a departmental inquiry into him in the Antilya explosives case.

A senior Home Ministry official said, “We have informed the IB that former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh has not been traced and he has not been given any work notice for more than three months. We also began the process of declaring him a fugitive by appealing to the IB for help. We are taking a legal opinion for this.

Parambir Singh, who went on leave due to health reasons, has been missing since May. Several letters were sent to Singh at his Chandigarh residence and inquired about his whereabouts, but no response was received. Home Minister Dilip Walse Patil said last month that the All India Services (Code of Conduct) regulations were being looked into to take action against the IPS officer.

Mumbai-based Thane police issued a lookout notice on Parambir Singh in July. He has repeatedly failed to appear before the Chandiwal Commission set up by the state government to probe allegations of corruption against former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.
