Moga, December 29
Complying with the instructions of the Election Commission (EC), 20 police personnel, who were allegedly given out-of-turn promotions by former DGP Paramdeep Singh Gill, were transferred out of Moga district today.

The former top cop has been named as the SAD candidate from the Moga Assembly constituency.

Confirming the development, newly appointed SSP Inderbir Singh said the police personnel, including SHOs of the three police stations falling under the Moga constituency who were given out-of-turn promotions, had been transferred out of district.

He said Inspector Harjit Singh, SHO of the Moga (South) police station; Inspector Ravi Sher Singh, SHO of the Moga (Rural) police station; and Inspector Daljit Singh, SHO of the Samalsar police station had been transferred out of the district. Earlier, the SHO of the Moga (City-I) police station was transferred from his post.

Gobind Singh and Surinder Kumar, security guards deployed with Gill’s cousin Dr Sharanpreet Singh Gill (alias Micky Gill), had also been transferred. They had also got local rank promotions. The two cops were posted at the focal point police post, but were illegally deployed with former DGP’s cousin.
