On Friday night, DM Brajesh Narayan Singh wrote a letter to SSP Dr Ajay Pal Singh and objected to the new posting of the SHOs without his consent as per the new rules laid by the state government. “The state government issued an order on May 9 stating that the superintendents of police will have to take the approval of district magistrates for posting and transfer of SHOs. But without taking approval of the DM, seven inspectors were posted at police stations in the district. This was clear violation of the state government order,” the DM’s letter said.
Brajesh Narayan Singh further wrote that although the SSP is head of the district police force, according to the state government order, he will have to take approval of the DM for the transfer and posting of SHOs. “Since the SSP has overlooked the order, he was left with no option but to cancel the transfer order issued by the SSP,” he said.
On Wednesday, Principal Secretary (Home) Arvind Kumar issued the order that said SPs across districts will have to take clearance from the district magistrate regarding posting of SHOs.
