HYDERABAD : In the first major reshuffle of IPS officers in the State, the Telangana government on Sunday transferred 37 of them, including almost all serving in Hyderabad city police limits and some in Cyberabad and Ranga Reddy districts.

Officers, who opted for Andhra Pradesh before the Pratyush Sinha Committee which is looking into the allocation of All India Services officers between Telangana and AP, were directed to report to the DGP’s office. Those officers, who were allotted to AP in the provisional list prepared by the committee, were also asked to report to the DGP’s office. Some officers, who are natives of AP but have opted for posting in Telangana, have been posted at other places. Notable among those transferred are Ravi Gupta, a 1990 batch officer. The IG (Warangal) has been made IGP  (Railways). Sandeep Shandilya, who was IGP (Railways), was transferred and posted as IGP (Organisation & Police Reforms).

The rejig saw a major change in the Hyderabad City Police. Joint CP (coordination & security) Sanjay Kumar Jain, Joint CP (special branch) M Malla Reddy and Deputy Commissioners of Police of Traffic-I, East, South, West and Central zones were among the transferred.

In the Cyberabad police limits too, DCPs of LB Nagar, Balanagar, Malkajgiri and Shamshabad were transferred. Sources said the officers, who have either opted for AP or whose names figured in the AP cadre in the provisional list, were attached to the DGP’s office ahead of their final allocation to either AP or TS.
