The Marine Drive police had registered the extortion case against Singh on July 22 based on a complaint from real estate developer Shyamsunder Agarwal. The Maharashtra Criminal Investigation Department is conducting an inquiry in the case.

This is a third non-bailable warrant against Singh. Earlier, courts in Thane and Goregaon near Mumbai had issued warrants against Singh in different extortion cases.

Singh’s whereabouts have been unknown for a while now. Earlier this month, the Maharashtra government had told the Bombay High Court that he was not traceable. There is speculation that Singh might have fled India.
