HYDERABAD: IPS officer Avinash Mohanty, son of retired DGP AK Mohanty, formally joined the Andhra Pradesh police cadre on Monday after the ministry of Home Affairs reallocated his cadre from Chhattisgarh to the state.

Sources said that Avinash Mohanty, a 2005 batch officer, met DGP V Dinesh Reddy and reported for duty on Monday morning. He is yet to be given a posting. It was after a long legal battle that Avinash’s cadre was reallocated from Chhattisgarh, where he earlier worked as superintendent of police of the Naxal-infested Bijapur and Dhamtari districts.

The legal battle over cadre allottment between him and his batchmate CM Thrivikrama Varma went to the AP High Court, which had ruled that allocation of AP cadre to Varma was in violation of guidelines. Thereafter, the matter reached the Supreme Court which upheld the HC order. Subsequently, the home ministry issued orders reallocating Mohanty’s cadre to AP while retaining Varma.

Varma is presently working as SP of East Godavari district.
