Headlines: MHA Asks Three WB Police Officials To Be Transferred Out of State

Close on the heels of summoning of West Bengal chief secretary and DGP to Delhi to discuss alleged lapses in BJP president JP Nadda’s security, the Union home ministry has now asked for three IPS officers who were on duty to be transferred out of the state. Bholanath Pandey (SP, Diamond Harbour), Rajeev Mishra (ADG, South Bengal) and Praveen Tripathi (DIG, Presidency Range) have been called to Delhi on central deputation.
This is the second instance where West Bengal cadre IPS officers are being forced out of the state by the central government. Earlier, Kolkata CP Rajiv Kumar was brought on central deputation after he sat on dharna with chief minister Mamata Banerjee in uniform. In May 2019, the Election Commission had ordered Rajiv Kumar to report to MHA on duty.
