Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government has suspended Bulandshahr Senior Superintendent of Police N Kolanchi for gross irregularities in posting of SHOs (station head officers) in the district, an official said.
In a late night statement issued here on Saturday, Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Awanish Awasthi said Kolanchi has been attached to the DGP headquarters.
"A report by the UP Director General of Police OP Singh, evaluating Kolanchi's work, states that there were gross irregularities in posting of SHOs," he said.
"Kolanchi did not follow the laid down procedure and transferred the SHOs and inspectors as per his whims," the official said.
Kolanchi also made adverse entry against two SHOs which is against the rules, Awasathi said in the statement.
He said the SHOs and inspectors were transferred in short durations without transparency in the procedure, affecting the stability of the police administration in the district.
"Kolanchi's style of work maligned the image of the police in the public eyes. He has been suspended with immediate effect, and attached to DGP headquarters," the statement said.
Meanwhile, Chandauli SSP Santosh Kumar Singh has been transferred to Bulandshahr to replace Kolanchi.
Hemant Kutiyal has been made the new SP of Chandauli. (PTI)
