Drawing attention to a news item “10 IRB in combat zone”, reported in this daily September 13, wherein it was stated that 10 NAP (IRB) sent to Purulia, West Bengal, for anti-Naxal operations, had already been inducted for active duties, the state police department today said the unit was deployed for operational duties after completion of two-week induction period with West Bengal police.
Clarifying to a statement of official sources, who told this daily on condition of anonymity, that “six companies of the 10 IRB are being commanded by Inspectors instead of DSPs owing to shortage of officers,” the PHQ inspector general of police (IGP) S. TSangtam, in a press rejoinder, said four of the unit’s companies were being commanded by assistant commandants.
“It is a fact that the department is facing acute shortage of officers in the rank of DSPs/ ACs with 32 vacancies in the whole department,” the police officer said, and added that all NAP units were facing the same problem of officer shortages.
He, however, said that 10 NAP (IR) Bn, as of now, has four assistant commandants with more to be posted shortly.
On the sidelines of the report that all units would be commanded by newly recruited officers straightaway, the IGP said those ACs in the unit were not “newly recruited officers” but of earlier batches.
The police department also mentioned that 13 DSPs, who recently passed out from police training school, Dergaon September 4, have not been given any posting as they needed to complete district attachments and other mandatory period of practical training.
