An important file went missing from the office of a Gurgaon Police joint commissioner three days ago. The office, located in the mini-secretariat and guarded by at least four policemen at a time, has witnessed such a breach for the first time, said an official.

According to sources, the file that has gone missing is the “out-of-turn promotions file”.

“It had come for a review to the joint commissioner’s office a few days ago. However, when it was called in, no one could find it. Only then did we realise that the file had been stolen,” an official said. The police have registered a complaint against unknown persons under section 308 of the IPC (theft).

According to the official, the file had a list of police personnel who were to be promoted based on their performance.

But what made this file more important is that it also a had list of personnel who were to be promoted based on recommendations by senior officials.

What is baffling is how a routine file could be relevant to anyone, said Saurabh Singh, the officer in whose office the theft took place.

“The contents of the file can be retrieved. But what is more concerning is that such a breach has taken place in my office,” Singh said.

Sources also said the file had a list of personnel whose names were in suspected corruption cases.
