Show cause notice sent to ex-Bastar IG for indiscipline

Raipur (Chhattisgarh) [India], Mar. 04 : The Chhattisgarh Director General of Police (DGP) has sent a show cause notice and issued a warning letter for indiscipline to former Bastar inspector general of police (IG) S.R.P.

Kalluri for attending a private function in Jagdalpur without informing his superiors. DGP A.N. Upadhyay sent the warning letter to Kalluri after he circulated a WhatsApp post in this regard. Kalluri has been served two notices and a response has been sought from him for the same in three days.

It is the same private function where former Sukma Superintendent of Police, IK Elesela allegedly said that human rights workers should be run over by vehicle.

Kalluri has been facing flak for alleged fake encounters and targeting local journalists, social and human rights activists in Bastar.

The 1994-batch officer, who was IG of police Bastar Range, was earlier sanctioned 90-day leave with effect from February 1.

However, instead of availing leave, he requested the DGP for a fresh posting and was subsequently sent to police head quarters.
