Uttar Pradesh Police chief Javeed Ahmed was Friday shunted out by the Yogi Adityanath government, which transferred 12 IPS officers in the first big reshuffle in the top police hierarchy after the BJP stormed to power. 1980-batch IPS officer Sulkan Singh, who was DG (Training), will replace Ahmed, who has been shifted as the DG of Uttar Pradesh Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC), a senior Home department official said here. ADG (Law and Order) Daljit Singh Chowdhury and ADG Economic Offence Wing (EOW) and Logistics Aditya Mishra have swapped places in the transfer which came a month after Adtiyanath assumed office.

During the recent assembly polls, the BJP had petitioned the Election Commission to remove Ahmed, alleging that he was working at the behest of the then Samajwadi Party government. DG (Intelligence) Jawahar Lal Tripathi has been made DG (Prosecution) and DG (Homeguards) Alok Prasad has been given additional charge of Training.

Surya Kumar has been relieved from the post of DG (Prosecution) and will continue as DG police recruitment and promotion board. ADG (Security) Bhavesh Kumar Singh has been made ADG (Intelligence), ADG Police Training School Sitapur Vijay Kumar has been made ADG (Security) while Alok Singh, who was on wait list has been made IG PAC (Eastern zone). IG Sanjay Singhal has been made IG, PAC Central zone.

IG Women Powerline Navneet Sikera has been relieved from the charge of PAC central zone but will continue on other posts.

    IE is doing more harm to Muslim by con uously high lighting anything and everything to do with Muslim! This is making people more su ious about Muslims in general where as BJP is trying to be fair giving the rightfull dues to any one and everyone, Muslim or non-Muslim! Soon this strategy of sickulars going to boomerang on them with even greater impact then what has already been in UP! Modi has learned the art of harnessing negative energy and he will do the same as long as it pays!

      you're right. The entire left in India is extremely communal. Secularism for them has always been the other name of minority appea t and/or Hindu bashing. IE is being secular!!1

        Does the swapping of chairs really help when you have dead wood at the top?
