Param Bir Singh was born in Chandigarh and graduated from Punjab University. He became the Police Commissioner of Mumbai in 2020 replacing Sanjay Barve. Parambir Singh was made the Commissioner by the Maharashtra Govt and was given several high profile cases to handle such as the TRP scam, Anvay Naik suicide case, Murder of Sushant Singh Rajput, Antilia Bomb case, Mansukh Hiren murder and also the Malegaon blast case where Sadhvi Pragya accused of being tortured by Prambir Singh in custody. Anil Deshmukh trasnfered Parambir to home guard after which he wrote a sensational letter to the then Chief Minister Uddhav Thackrey accusing Anil Deshmukh of extorting 100 crores from restaurants, bars, further stating that Anil Deshmukh had been involved in several malpractices

Anvay Naiks case was reopened and Sachin Vaze took a team of police officers with him along with guns, barged into Arnab Goswamis home and took him into custody. In the TRP case, Parambir Singh held a press conference and falsely accused Republic media network however the complaint was against India Today and only to eventually reveal one day that it was a massive political conspiracy to stop Arnab Goswami from reporting on the cases that was bringing Maharashtra under the spot light, including the Pahalgar lynching case.


Parambir Singh who botched up several cases of corruption, Sushant Singh Rajputs case, TRP case trying to fix Republic media network, Mansukh Hiren case, Antilia case, retired on 30th June along with the current Police Commissioner Sanjay Pandey.

The home department filed its reply to Parambirs plea for challenging his suspension. The Home department stated that they have a strong case against Parambir Singh. Following the Antilia Bomb case, Parambir Singh was suspended for mishandling the entire case and botching up.

People raised questions on the whereabouts of Parambir Singh including people from the police force. IPS officer Kiran Bedi said ‘’ Parambir is making a choice between life of escape or life in jail, hinting that he was guilty and that is why he’s running away. Further going to call it a disgrace to the service.
