The State has initiated disciplinary proceedings against suspended IPS officer Param Bir Singh, Maharashtra Home Minister Dilip Walse Patil said in the state Assembly on Wednesday. Singh was placed under suspension earlier this month after he was named as an accused in multiple cases of extortion in Mumbai and Thane.

He had earlier accused then state home minister Anil Deshmukh of corruption. Walse Patil said the home department has got information of serious offenses involving 30 police officials, including Param Bir Singh, and sought more details about charges against them.

These officials include five deputy commissioners of police (DCPs) and five assistant commissioners of police (ACPs), he said. So far, Param Bir Singh and Parag Manere (who served as the DCP) have been suspended, the minister informed. The state Director General of Police (DGP) has given a proposal for the suspension of others to ensure a free and fair probe, the minister said.
