In a sensational move, all the Police Personnel at the Punjagutta Police Station have been transferred. Punjagutta Police Station is one of the top PSs in the state. As many as 86 Police Personnel have been transferred. Hyderabad Police Commissioner Kothakota Srinivas Reddy upon the directions of Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy has issued the orders to this effect.
This is the first time that all the Police officers have been transferred from a single Police Station. Right from circle inspectors to home guards to security staff at the station have been ordered to join their new postings at the earliest.
The reason behind such a massive scale of transfers might be that the Congress government believes the Police Personnel in the Punjagutta station have still been loyal to the BRS Chief K Chandrasekhar Rao. Punjagutta PS covers Pragati Bhavan which is the official bungalow of KCR and the Congress government thinks that the KCR posted his favorite officials at the PS. Hence the massive transfers from the same Police Station.
