Haryana IPS officer Ranbir Sharma has decided to quit the service by seeking voluntary retirement.

Though Sharma, who is otherwise scheduled to retire in November 2015, has cited personal reasons for seeking voluntary retirement, sources said that the IPS officer is seriously contemplating taking the political plunge. It is expected that Sharma, who hails from Hisar, may contest the assembly or Lok Sabha elections in 2014.

The 1990-batch IPS officer has also requested the state government to relieve him from service by December 31, 2013, by waiving the stipulated three-month notice period.

Sharma, who was inducted into the IPS from the state police service, is the son-in-law of former BJP MP from Karnal, ID Swami.

Haryana IAS officer Abhe Singh Yadav has also sought voluntary retirement to join the political bandwagon. Yadav, who comes from Narnaul, is certain to contest the 2014 assembly elections from southern Haryana . The 2001-batch IAS officer is otherwise scheduled to retire in March 2015.
