Late on Thursday, Vaid was transferred and posted as the Transport Commissioner. Director General of Police (Prisons) Dilbagh Singh, who replaced Vaid, has been directed to look after the force until a regular appointment was made.
The official order to this effect was issued by R K Goyal the Principal Secretary of Home Department.
Vaid, a 1986-batch IPS officer, was appointed as the DGP in December 2016. He is due to retire in October 2019.
Singh, who has been made the in-charge DGP, is a 1987-batch officer. He was made the head of the prison department in March after the infamous escape of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist Naved Jhatt while the latter was on a routine health check-up at a city hospital in February.
