Sangrur, October 30

In the biggest reshuffle effected in the district police department, SSP Vivek Sheel Soni has transferred 615 cops of various ranks to improve the functioning of the district police. The transfer orders have come after thorough scrutiny of the records.

After taking charge a few days ago, the SSP has been working to identify the cops, who have never worked in any police station. He has been checking records of cops, who are overstaying in some police stations of their ‘choice’ by using their connections.

Of 615 transferred cops, seven are Sub Inspectors, 16 are Assistant Sub Inspectors, 62 are head constables and 530 are constables.

The 42 km border with Haryana is challenging for the police, as smugglers try to supply drugs to their customers in Sangrur and other districts. There are many small passages in the area, and cops always face problems in breaking the supply line. “The increase in the number of trained cops will help the border district arrest smugglers,” said a senior officer.

“We had sought three options from each cop and transferred them accordingly. In the coming days, more transfers will take place,” said Soni. — TNS
