Delhi Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) chief M K Meena, who had been at the loggerheads with the Arvind Kejriwal government, was today transferred along with 14 senior Delhi Police officials in a major reshuffle tonight.
The transfer of officials came amid attack on Delhi Police by opposition parties in the wake of the JNU incident and alleged inaction by the police during the assault on journalists at Patiala House court yesterday.
As per the transfer order, Meena who had incurred the wrath of the Aam Aadmi Party government over a number of controversial cases, has been shunted out to the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, official sources said. Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) Prem Nath, who is handling a number of high-profile cases, including the Sunanda Pushkar death case, has been shifted to Mizoram.
DCP Prem Nath was also handling the investigation into sexual harassment charges on R K Pachauri, the death of a student at Ryan International school, and asked for NIA and Special Cell to investigate the JNU row.
While Joint Commissioner of Police (Central range) S K Gautam has been transferred to Puducherry, Special Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Muktesh Chander has been moved to Goa, sources said.
