J&K DGP likely to be state`s first CVC
Srinagar: The name of Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police Kuldeep Khooda is believed to have been recommended by the state government for the post of state`s first Chief Vigilance Commissioner.
The 1974-batch IPS officer of J&K cadre, Khooda, who retires in three days time, has been named for the position of CVC while two others R K Jerath and Syed Khan have been recommended for being members of the Vigilance Commission.
The recommendations have been sent to the state Governor N N Vohra after a meeting of a panel consisting of representatives of the ruling coalition partners - National Conference, Congress - as well as the Leader of Opposition in the State Assembly, PDP`s Mehbooba Mufti.
Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, who belongs to the NC, chaired the panel meeting which was attended by Deputy Chief Minister and Congress representative Tara Chand and Law Minister Ali Mohammed Sagar.
Mufti opposed Khooda`s name raking up the issue of civilian deaths in 2010 when widespread clashes took place between Kashmiri youths and security forces.
