Andhra Director General of Police V. Dinesh Reddy has written to the government seeking action against four Indian Police Service (IPS) officers for their alleged corrupt practices. He had also asked for a probe by the Anti-Corruption Bureau against two more IPS officers. Out of the six officers under probe two of them holding the rank of Inspector General (IG), have already been shifted to non-focal postings. These developments come in the wake of dismissal of two Deputy Superintendents of Police(DSP) on corruption charges in the last one month.
Mr. Reddy revealed that a surveillance system has been put in place to monitor all officers above the rank of sub inspector in the state. Mr. Reddy said that intervention in civil disputes is one of the major causes for corruption. He has issued strict instructions not to intervene in such matters unless they threatened to escalate into law and order disturbance.
