MUMBAI: Enforcement Directorate (ED) recorded the statement of IPS officer Param Bir Singh on Friday, in a money-laundering case it is investigating against former home minister Anil Deshmukh. Singh earlier avoided two ED summons while he was in hiding to avoid arrest in different cases registered by police against him.
Last month, the Supreme Court provided Singh protection from arrest till the next hearing of his petition on December 6. Singh then visited Mumbai to record his statement to the police and subsequently the ED issued a third summon to him.
The ED examined Singh and his family me-mbers for financial details to ascertain if they received any benefit from the “hafta” money allegedly collected by dismissed API Sachin Waze from bars.
It is also investigating Singh’s role in the reinstatement of Waze into the police force, 16 years after his suspension for the custodial death of Ghatkopar blast suspect Khwaja Yunus. ED is checking if there was any financial transaction between Singh and Waze. —Vijay V Singh
