8 Mumbai Police officers transferred again within a week

A couple of days after Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray cancelled the transfers of nine Deputy Commissioners of Police (DCPs) in Mumbai for not consulting him on the move, the Mumbai Police on Friday again transferred them barring one. Interestingly, these officers have been transferred at the same post they were at last week before Thackeray raised the red flag.

The IPS officer Shahaji Umap has been transferred to Special Branch (1) from the post of DCP (Detection), a coveted post in the crime branch. Pranay Ashok, an IPS posted as DCP (Operations) who doubled as the spokesperson will be new DCP in zone 5, the post he had vacated three days ago. Paramjit Dahiya, an IPS posted as DCP (zone 7) has been moved as DCP (zone 3).

The only officer who has been retained in this new order is Sangramsinh Nishandar, DCP (zone 1). Earlier, he was transferred as DCP (Operation) but Friday’s order does not mention his name.

The flip-flop on the officers’ transfers has already brought a bad name to the police department. Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar had called Thackeray thrice since last week to discuss the developments in the state. They reportedly discussed the police officers’ transfers as well. Pawar, however, has denied that any such discussion took place between them.

The two leaders met on Friday again, hours before transfer orders of the police officers were issued.
