BENGALURU: City Police Commissioner B Dayananda has cracked the whip on officers for not properly handing over charge after their transfer. He said the officers did not follow the disciplines as per the law during their transfers.

The transferred officers shifted immediately after receiving the order, leaving matters in a mess where they were posted. As per norms, everything in a police station, including the service revolver, walkie-talkie and case files should be handed over to the new officer, but many took up their new postings leaving behind incomplete work at their statons.

Police Commissioner Dayananda has directed that henceforth, transferred police officers should hand over charge to the incoming officer as per norms, give information about the case history and its stage, and only then they should report to their place of posting after getting an NoC from the Deputy Commissioner of Police concerned.

Only if due process is followed, the officer will get their salaries, or else it will be withheld. The rule will be applicable to sub-inspectors, inspectors, and ACP-level officers in Bengaluru.
