New Delhi: Delhi Police Commissioner Y S
Dadwal, who had conveyed it to the Home Ministry that he
should be relieved from his present assignment, is likely to
stay for some more time as Home Minister P Chidambaram today
made it clear that there was no fixed tenure for the
high-profile job.

"He (Dadwal) is not due to retire now. He has many more
months," he told reporters when asked when Dadwal would be
relieved of his present responsibilities.

When reminded that the 1974 batch IPS officer has
completed three years at the helm of affairs in Delhi Police,
Chidambaram shot back, saying "Who says that there is a fixed
tenure or so?"

Sources had earlier said that Dadwal, who had conveyed it
to the Home Ministry that he should be relieved from his
present post, would be transferred as Director General of SSB
after US President Barack Obama`s India visit beginning
October 6.
