Delhi Police have done a major reshuffle of the officers of the traffic unit. A total of 12 assistant commissioners of police (ACPs) out of 14 have been transferred or posted.
Each district has an ACP to look after entire traffic management of all the circles in a district. Besides, four ACPs are on special responsibilities like looking after traffic management on VIP routes, traffic engineering and road safety. One ACP looks after traffic police headquarter.
Satyendra Garg, joint commissioner of police (traffic), who has issued the order on Monday, said: “This reshuffle has been made to ensure better traffic management across the city.”
He said that within a few days he would issue another transfer order for the traffic inspectors. There will also be a major reshuffle, said sources.
“Traffic management is the worst in Trans Yamuna that needed a major improvement. Both the ACPs in east and northeast districts that fall under Trans Yamuna have been transferred and replaced by two officers with better track record,” said an official.
Traffic police reportedly were not happy with performances of Raj Kumar, ACP, east and Chaman Lal Bhatti, ACP, northeast. They have been moved to headquarter and engineering department respectively. The new ACPs in these two crucial districts are Amrik Singh (who was ACP northwest till Monday) as ACP east and Anil Kapoor (on arrival) as ACP northeast.
“There are only two ACPs — Mohan Singh, ACP New Delhi and Anita Roy, ACP Southeast, who have not been transferred,” said Garg.
