HYDERABAD:  The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) is believed to have shortlisted three IPS officers for selection of regular DGP for Telangana and the state government is likely to pick up Anurag Sharma for the top post. Sharma is already holding the post of incharge DGP.

The state government had sent the names of five IPS officers to UPSC about 10 days ago. They include Aruna Bahuguna, K Durgaprasad, AK Khan, Anurag Sharma and Tejdeep Kaur Menon.

The UPSC is said to have shortlisted the names of Anurag Sharma, Durga Prasad and Aruna Bahuguna. Though AK Khan of 1981 batch is senior to Anurag Sharma, sources said that his name was dropped as he never worked in any Central police organisation.

While both Durga Prasad and Aruna Bahuguna are on Central deputation, Sharma previously worked with a central police organisation.The shortlisted names were reportedly sent to the state government and the government, in all likelihood, will pick up Anurag Sharma for the top post.
