Param Bir Singh, the former commissioner of Mumbai Police, appeared at the city police's Crime Branch Unit office on Thursday morning after disappearing in October. Singh faces at least four cases of extortion in Maharashtra and his disappearance led to rumours he had fled the country.

"I will join the investigation as directed by the court," Singh told reporters at Mumbai airport, after flying in from Chandigarh, where he was seen Wednesday. 

The Supreme Court on Thursday ordered more Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) be sent to Tripura to secure municipal polls. Trinamool Congress and CPI (M) told the court their candidates and supporters were being harassed in Tripura and not allowed to vote.
