It is quite possible that some of these officials will be attached with the District Police Lines (DPL) and some will be transferred to the peripheral areas. Also, Inspectors and SIs with good track records, recently attached with District Police Lines, are touted replace these ‘tainted’ policemen.

SSP Uttam Chand, who is taking special interest in the preparation of this list, said that this is being done to improve working of police at Thana Level.
