After one about a month ago, the Gujarat government made another round of IPS transfers just before the assembly elections. Twelve IPS and SPS (State Police Service) officers have been transferred as part of the most recent action, five of whom are female.
A G Chauhan, who was unexpectedly appointed Principal of the State Police Academy in Karai in place of N N Chaudhary, who has been promoted to the position of Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) for the city of Ahmedabad, was one of the transfers.
Harshadkumar Patel is another IPS officer who has been relocated from the city. He has been downgraded from the position of IGP to SP, Motor Transport Department (Gandhinagar). SPS officer Komal Vyas, who was previously assigned as the Commandant of SRPF Group -7 Nadiad and Kheda, takes his place. Patel worked in DCP Control Room (Ahmedabad).
