State police, which is already facing acute shortage of officers, is all set to touch its peak of crisis by the middle of this year when there would be hardly one IGP in the police headquarter (PHQ).
According to official source, out of eight sanctioned posts of IGPs four posts of IGPs are presently vacant.
Among the existing four IGPs in the state PHQ also includes two inspector general of police who were manning the charge of ADGP.
On the other hand, two are due for retirement soon while another IGP who was on deputation from West Bengal cadre is due to go back on completion of his five year tenure of deputation by August next, thereby leaving with only one IGP in the entire PHQ.
Similarly, it was also learnt that the same was the case at the level of deputy inspector general of police (DIGPs) and there are presently three DIGPs posts lying vacant.
With such crisis at hand and the lack of initiatives of the state government to find remedial measures so far, a senior officer wonders as to how a single IGP would handle the functioning of the entire state police headquarters by August.
The fast depleting officers of the state police at the top level has also recently compelled the state home department to demote the post of special secretary (home) to that of secretary (home) as the earlier was at the rank of IGP and was normally man by an IGP in the past.
