A day after commissioner of police Arup Patnaik caught a senior police inspector sleeping on duty and transferred him, Patnaik has cracked the whip again.
On Monday, Patnaik ordered the transfer of an inspector after he found the Malad police station premises “dirty and ill maintained” during a surprise visit.
Dnyaneshwar Deole, police inspector (administration), will be transferred to the control room, confirmed Ramrao Pawar, additional commissioner of police (north region).
Patnaik was agitated when he saw several motorcycles, seized in cases over the years, rusting on the premises and the “unhygienic” condition of the police station. On making enquiries, he found that Deole was in charge for maintaining the police station, and ordered his immediate transfer.
The Hindustan Times had reported that on Sunday Patnaik had transferred Vasant Tajne, senior police inspector of Worli police station, to the control room after he found him napping on duty during a surprise visit.
