The Uttar Pradesh government on Friday transferred as many as six Indian Police Service (IPS) officers. This was the first transfer of senior police officials of the state after chief minister Yogi Adityanath held a meeting of all district magistrates and senior superintendents of police (SSP)/SPs to review the law and order situation in the state.

According to a statement issued by the state home department, the additional director general (ADG) law and order and ADG prison administration and reform were among those who were transferred.
