Chhattisgarh government has transferred Sukma's Superintendent of Police (SP) Jitendra Shukla within two months of taking the post. This is Shukla's second transfer ever since the Congress formed the government in the state in December last year.
An Indian Police Service.officer of the 2013 batch, Jitendra Shukla is now attached with police headquarters. He was earlier posted in Narayanpur before Sukma. Reportedly, Shukla was transferred from Sukma after he denied a state minister's demand of transferring an inspector.
Whereas Congress has refuted the charges and stated that transfers were done in public welfare.
