In a noteworthy administrative move orchestrated by the Delhi Lt Governor, Mr. Vinai Kumar Saxena, the Delhi Police has witnessed a substantial reshuffling of its top brass. The development involves the transfer of at least 25 IPS officers, including prominent figures such as Special Commissioners Dependra Pathak, HGS Dhaliwal, and Ravindra Singh Yadav, alongside two DANIPS officers.
As mandated by the directives from the LG’s office, the seasoned Special Commissioner of Police for Law and Order Zone I, Dependra Pathak (1990-batch IPS), now assumes a pivotal role in the Security unit. Simultaneously, the responsibility for Law and Order Zone I shifts to Special CP Ravindra Singh Yadav (1995-batch IPS), previously in charge of the Crime division.
Other key changes include the relocation of Special CP HGS Dhaliwal (1997-batch IPS) to Traffic Zone II and the transfer of Special CP SS Yadav (1997-batch IPS) to the Economic Offences Wing (EOW).
Law and Order Zone II will now be under the vigilant leadership of Special CP Madhup Tiwari (1995-batch IPS), while Special CP Sagarpreet Hooda (1997-batch IPS) takes on the responsibilities of PCR (communications) and assumes an additional charge of Perception Management and Media Cell Division.
Further adjustments involve the move of Special CP (1996-batch IPS) Shalini Singh to the Crime unit and Special CP RP Upadhayay (1991-batch IPS) taking the reins of the Special Cell.
The Licensing unit welcomes Special CP Virender Singh (1991-batch IPS), and Traffic Zone I sees Special CP K Jagadesan (1998-batch IPS) assuming leadership responsibilities.
Special CP Chhaya Sharma (1999-batch IPS), already heading the Training Division, adds to her portfolio the additional charge of SPUWAC (Special Police Unit For Women & Children) and SPUNER (Special Police Unit for North-Eastern Region).
Moreover, the Lt Governor has orchestrated transfers for 16 deputy commissioners of police-rank officers, each assigned to diverse roles with specific additional charges.
The comprehensive reshuffling also extends to DANIPS officers, with 2009-batch Kamalpal Singh and 2010-batch Patel Aalap Mansukh being reassigned to Railways and Security units, respectively.
This strategic realignment is anticipated to fortify the Delhi Police’s operational capabilities and enhance its overall efficiency in maintaining law and order. The newly appointed leadership is expected to bring a fresh perspective and contribute to the ongoing efforts in ensuring the safety and security of the capital city.
