Dantewada Police Superintendent, 15 others transferred
Raipur: Chhattishgarh government on Friday transferred the Dantewanda district Police Superintendent and 15 other officials in the wake of massacre of CRPF personnel by the Naxalites.
Acting on the recommendation from the Rammohan Committee formed after the killing of police personnel in Dantewada district, the BJP government transferred Police Superintendent Ambrish Mishra, 11 IPS officers and four state-level policemen, official sources said.
On April 6, Naxalites had killed 75 CRPF personnel and a police officer also succumbed in the massacre.
The Committee appointed by the Union Home ministry headed by Rammohan, former DGP of Border Security Force, had fixed the responsibility for the lapse on these police officials, officials said.
The state government was hesitating to take action against the police officials, but had to act at the instance of the Central Government, sources said.
