The State Government has put on hold the Police Establishment Boards order transferring 64 Deputy Superintendents of Police, issued on May 31.

Chief Minister Yeddyurappa gave oral instruction to Home Department Secretary K M Shivakumar to stall the transfer order on Tuesday.

The Government had set up the Police Establishment Board to handle transfer of police officers of rank DySP and below. Transfer orders were issued as per the guidelines set for the Board.

It is said that the Board did not consider the recommendations made by several ministers while preparing the list of officers for transfer.

Ministers’ grouses

The Chief Minister stalled the order following complaints by the ministers against the Board’s negligence to their recommendations. Bangalore City Police Commissioner Shankar Bidari was also upset because of transfer of several ACPs in Bangalore city.

DG & IGP Ajaikumar Singh has refused to react to the Government’s decision. He was on leave on Tuesday.

Sources said the Government has quoted the model code of conduct as the reason for not giving effect to the transfers.

There were speculations that the Government may wind up the Police Establishment Board or may authorise it to only decide transfers of officers below the rank of DySP.
