The Punjab government has sent a panel of three officers amid a controversy over the repatriation of a Punjab cadre officer from the post of Chandigarh SSP. The names of IPS Bhagirath Singh Meena, Dr. Akhil Chowdhary and Dr. Sandeep Kumar Garg are included in the panel. Sandeep is the SSP of Mohali.
On Wednesday, the Chandigarh administration had asked the Punjab government to send a panel of three IPS officers for the post. Chandigarh Administrator and Punjab Governor Banwari Lal Purohit has appointed Haryana IPS officer Manisha Chowdhary, prematurely terminating the services of Punjab officer Kuldeep Singh Chahal as SSP. Expressing strong objection to this decision, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann had written a letter to the governor on Tuesday itself. Along with this, he had also announced that the Punjab government would soon send a panel of three officers to the UT administration for appointment to the post.
