For instance, a non-Telangana inspector who got marred to a woman of Telangana, was also asked to get ready for transfer to another wing. The inspector, however, managed to retain his post in Cyberabad with recommendation from a city MLA.
Some inspectors are also getting ready to take the issue to the notice of Governor ESL Narasimhan and Union home ministry by submitting a representation very soon. Some of the transferred inspectors have already contacted Raj Bhavan officers for an appointment with the Governor.
