Dawood aide Parveen arrested in extortion case involving Param Bir Singh
A court in Mumbai on Friday ordered that he be handed over to Thane police.
It was filed on the complaint of builder Ketan Tanna, who alleged that Singh and other officers extorted money from him by threatening to frame him up in false cases when Singh was Thane police commissioner.
Parveen, accused in another extortion case, was lodged in the Taloja jail. A court in Mumbai on Friday ordered that he be handed over to Thane police. Thane police produced him before a local court which remanded him in police custody till September 22.
Singh has not been arrested in the case so far. He was transferred from the post of Mumbai police commissioner in March in the aftermath of the `Antilia bomb scare incident'. He later accused then Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh of corruption, which led to the minister's eventual resignation.
