Reshuffle on the Cards
The heady smell of change is in the corridors of Delhi police HQ at ITO. After the Home Ministry trasferred out many senior Delhi Police officers, more are in the offing at various levels, including joint commissioner, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP). A DCP in south-western range will join Foreigner Regional Registration Office. Another DCP, who is special officer of an ex-commissioner is bound for the Central Bureau of Investigation. Similarly, a joint commissioner is already packing his bags to join CBI. Another of the same rank heading a range, will soon join the Enforcement Directorate.
High on Hygiene
Swachh Police is the byword after a sanitation conscious joint commissioner wrote to Commissioner of Police Amulya Patnaik about the stinking condition of toilets in police stations. CP immediately directed SHOs to clean up their act. The complaining cop was on patrol when he noticed the smell. The note went, “condition of toilet in police station is very poor”. Next, the condition of the stations themselves?
I’m the Boss
A certain DCP, miffed with the freewheeling style of junior colleagues has written to his officers, ordering them to seek his approval before sending any file or note to Police Headquarters. Reportedly, the staff in his districts were corresponding directly to PHQ without keeping him in the loop. After his repeated requests fell on deaf ears, he decided to commit complaints to paper.
