Singh was removed from the post of Mumbai police chief last month after the recovery of the vehicle with explosives near Ambani’s house on February 25, followed by mysterious death of businessman Manuskh Hiren, whose body was found in the Mumbra creek in neighbouring Thane on March 5. At present, Param Bir Singh has been transferred and posted as DG Home Guard.

The NIA probing the case, has arrested several people, including suspended Crime Branch police officer Sachin Vaze and seized several high-end vehicles used by him. It also arrested suspended police constable Vinayak Shinde and cricket bookie Naresh Gor in connection with the murder of Mansukh Hiran. 

In February, an explosives-laden Scorpio was found near industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s house in south Mumbai with a threat letter inside. Hiran, who was in possession of the SUV, had claimed that it had been stolen a week earlier, but the case got murky when he was found dead in a creek in Thane on March 5.
