Inspectors cool heels at DPL while SIs officiate as SHOs

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Jan 23: The charge of as many as four police stations in district Jammu has been assigned to Sub Inspector (SI) ranked officers even as there is no dearth of Inspectors in the police department.
On one hand, the SIs are holding the charge of SHOs of four police stations while on the other, 10 Inspectors are cooling their heels in the District Police Line (DPL), Jammu for the last two months with a hope of getting a suitable posting sooner than later, however, the department is not paying any attention towards them.
It is not only that the SIs are officiating as SHOs in district Jammu but there are more than four police stations where Inspector ranked officers from the Armed wing of the J&K Police is donning the role of SHOs.
According to sources, though there is a provision that a SI ranked officer could be handed over the charge of a police station whenever there is shortfall of Inspectors but the present arrangement in district Jammu is totally uncalled for as ten Inspectors are almost sitting idle at the DPL, Jammu.
"The SIs and officers from the Armed wing of the police are presently manning several police stations of district Jammu purely due to their influence while many Inspectors from the Executive wing, who had been deputed at the DPL Jammu, are waiting for their turn to get posted at a proper place," said sources.
"The number of Inspectors deputed in the DPL, Jammu is growing day by day where as the charge of four police stations is being held by the SIs and there are more than four police stations where officers from the Armed wing are officiating as SHOs," added sources.
Sources said that probably Jammu is the only district out of 22 districts of the state where nearly 10 police stations have SHOs, who are either SI ranked officers or officers from the armed wing in clear contravention of the laid down norms.
Sources further said that right now there are very bleak chances of shunting out those SHOs, who are otherwise SIs or from the armed wing, as they were assigned such duties after receiving the recommendations from several top politicians and bureaucrats.
"The Police Headquarters (PHQ) is in favour of handing over the postings to those Inspectors, who are deputed at the DPL. PHQ has told the top brass of the District Police, Jammu not to further linger on stay of the Inspectors at the DPL but it looks like the district police is still reluctant to take a concrete decision in this regard as it has assured to initiate a reshuffle only after the Republic Day citing that it is not wise to change guard when the national festival is around the corner," said sources.
