Early Times Report

JAMMU, Dec 4: The race for the top post of the police department in district Jammu could end up in a photo finish as two contenders are vying hard to grab the posting.
According to sources, initially the name of only one officer was in contention for the post of Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Jammu, and his candidature was given a go ahead. However, in between the Centre intervened and sent a recommendation for one of its choices.
"At first, it looked like a smooth sailing for the officer whose name was accorded almost a green signal for the coveted post, but the situation changed altogether when a recommendation for the same position for another officer was received from New Delhi," said sources.
"Presently, names of both these officers, who have a gap of two years in their respective batches, are doing the rounds in the department with nearly the same gravity due to which these two aspirants have pulled up their socks to take hold of the all important assignment. For this the duo is putting up strenuous efforts at their own levels to accomplish the mission," added sources.
They said that even as the name of one officer was finalized but following Centre's sudden interest in backing another officer whose entry emerged after a dreaded terrorist was neutralized in a district of Kashmir valley where he is posted for the last one and a half years.
"Due to the officer's sustained efforts in handling the counter-insurgency operations in militancy infested Kashmir valley with efficiency, the officer has made a mark for himself in the corridors of power in New Delhi which in turn is proving a blessing for him," said sources.
"The officer whose name is recommended by the Centre is two years senior than the other officer. The Centre-backed officer has already served in Jammu province on a post in another wing, and during that period also he was a frontrunner to occupy the chair of SSP Jammu. However, he was sent to Kashmir at the eleventh hour," added sources.
It is pertinent to mention here that the key post of SSP, Jammu is lying vacant for the last few days and is being looked after by a Deputy Inspector General (DIG) ranked officer as additional charge.
