SC allows Dilbag Singh to continue as Jammu & Kashmir DGP

Early Times Report

Jammu, Sept 20: The Supreme Court today allowed acting Director General of Police (DGP) for Jammu & Kashmir Dilbag Singh to hold the post till regular appointment is made.
This was despite very vehement opposition by advocate Prashant Bhushan appearing for the petitioners, who contended that Singh is number 5 in seniority and that his appointment violates prior orders passed by the Supreme Court.
"This is a very serious violation of your Lordships' order. They've appointed somebody who is number five in seniority as acting DGP. We've filed a contempt application. How can the State be allowed to do this? Your Lordships' order has no meaning?"
It was submitted by Attorney General KK Venugopal and counsel for Jammu & Kashmir, Shoeb Alam that the State's proposal of names for the said appointment has been sent to the Union Public Services Commission (UPSC).
The appointment of a regular DGP of Jammu and Kashmir is to take place in five weeks after the UPSC takes a decision on the panel of names of senior police officers for this appointment.
In light of this, the Court allowed Dilbag Singh to continue as DGP till the UPSC decides on the State's proposal.
The PIL challenging the appointment of Dilbag Singh as the acting DGP of Jammu and Kashmir after the removal of SP Vaid from the post is being heard by the Bench of Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice DY Chandrachud.
