After Dilbag Singh took over as the new Director General of Police (DGP), senior IPS officer VK Singh is reported to have gone on protest leave.
Dilbag Singh, a 1987 batch officer, who on Friday took over as the DGP, beat two other senior officers to the post. They are VK Singh, Special DGP Headquarters, and SM Sahai, who is currently on deputation to the Centre.
Sources said VK Singh had gone on protest leave from Friday and also requested to be sent on deputation.
While VK Singh and Sahai were both inducted into the Indian Police Services (IPS) on August 24, 1987, Dilbag Singh was inducted on December 15, 1987.
