Chandigarh is likely to get its first woman senior superintendent of police (SSP) after UT administrator VP Badnore recommended to the Union home ministry the name of Punjab-cadre IPS officerJagdale Nilambari Vijay for the post.

A 2008-batch officer, Nilambari Vijay’s name was part of the panel of three officers received from the Punjab government on Friday. The two other officers on the list are S Bhoopati, a 2007-batch IPS officer and Naveen Singla, a 2009-batch officer.

While Nilambari Vijay is presently posted as Ropar SSP, Bhoopati is serving as Patiala SSP and Singla is Bathinda SSP.

Punjab had sent a fresh list after the name of Inderbir Singh, former Sangrur SSP, was dropped from the panel after he was prima facie found guilty of extorting money from two farmers and allegedly threatening to implicate them in a murder case when he was posted as Sangrur SSP.

The UT administration had earlier rejected two panels sent during the Shiromani Akali Dal-Bharatiya Janata Party (SAD-BJP) regime and requested the state government to send a fresh list of officers. The city SSP’s post has been lying vacant after Sukhchain Singh Gill, a 2003-batch IPS officer, was repatriated to Punjab in December last year. Eish Singhal is presently officiating as Chandigarh SSP.
