The diary of former DGP Narayan Mishra, which was recovered by the Special Vigilance Unit (SVU) probing the disproportionate assets (DA) case against him, contained names of some police officers and politicians.

SUV officials said that the diary, which contained details about the recruitment of constables in 2005 besides the money transactions, would throw more light on the nexus of police officials and the politicians, who might be implicated in the case.

Sources said that the SVU sleuths were planning to interrogate agents who had helped the senior-most IPS officer in making investments in shares and movable and immovable property.

A senior officer said that the SVU was preparing dossiers on police officials known to have amassed huge property disproportionate to their known sources of income. Policemen, right from sub-inspectors to senior IPS officers figure in the list.

"We are still scrutinising the documents seized during the search operations and other relevant papers," said IG, SVU, AK Upadhyay. Sources said that a team would soon go to Mishra's native place in Orissa to collect information about property purchased by him.

Meanwhile, Inspector General (IG), Homeguards, RR Verma, has been given additional charge of the Director General, (Homeguards) after the suspension of Narayan Mishra. Mishra reported to the police headquarters on Saturday following the state government directive.
