Sangrur, September 3
After identifying deadwood in the Sangrur police, the authorities concerned have compulsorily retired eight cops.
As per sources, the eight police personnel include a senior constable, three Head Constables (HCs), three Assistant Sub-Inspectors (ASIs) and a Sub-Inspector (SI).
“Lack of discipline is the main reason, but some cops have been facing the FIRs. Compulsory retirement has been done as an immediate punishment under Rule 3 (1) of the Punjab Civil Services (Premature Retirement) Rules 1975 after issuances of three months notice,” said a senior officer on condition of anonymity.
The authorities have also served notices to two more Head Constables for the compulsorily retirement.
As per sources, a special committee of senior officers of the Sangrur police had scrutinised service record of cops in the district. The committee also took feedback about performance of policemen from their immediate seniors.
Absence from duty during court hearings, protests and frequent drinking during duty hours, were primary reasons behind the compulsory retirement.
Sangrur Senior Superintendent of Police Dr Sandeep Garg said, “Cops who had been retired compulsorily were habitual absentees and their performance was very poor. We had started to scrutinise performance of cops on the directions of the Director General of Police,” said the SSP.
