Uttar Pradesh government today removed UP police chief Javeed Ahmad and ADG Law & Order Daljeet Chaudhary and 10 other IPS in the first reshuffle of Uttar Pradesh police officers after taking over the charge.
1980-batch IPS officer Sulkan Singh has been made director general of Uttar Pradesh Police and Aditya Mishra has replaced Daljeet Singh Chaudhary as new ADG (L&O).
Javeed Ahmed has been appointed director general of Uttar Pradesh Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC) and Daljeet has been given named as new ADG of Economic Offence Wing (EOW).
