SC lets acting DGP in J&K continue for next few weeks

Asks govt., UPSC to expedite move to post regular chief
The Supreme Court on Thursday allowed Dilbag Singh, acting Director General of Police in Jammu and Kashmir, to continue in office for the next few weeks till the Union Public Service Commission takes a decision on the appointment of a regular police chief. A Bench led by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra passed the order after Attorney-General K.K. Venugopal submitted that Mr. Singh, who replaced S.P. Vaid, is on temporary charge as acting DGP of the State. Mr. Venugopal said the State had already sent names of suitable candidates for the post to the UPSC for scrutiny. UPSC counsel Naresh Kaushik intervened to point out that there had been no delay on the part of the Commission. The UPSC had detected “certain deficiencies” in the communication sent by the competent authority of the government.
“Whatever it may be, the State shall comply with the requirement as sought for by the UPSC within five days and the UPSC shall take a decision within four weeks therefrom,” the court said.
