Even after a number of court directions, political interference has not stopped in the functioning and the administration of the police department. The best example for this is the high drama that prevailed in Mysuru, on Thursday.
On Wednesday, the state government issued an order transferring DCP Kavita from Mysuru Intelligence wing to the post of DCP (crime and traffic) Mysuru. However, to her dismay she was made to wait till 9.30 pm the next day to take charge and then in a shocking turn of events, she later learnt that her order was revoked.
All of this scene unfurled reportedly because the tough cop refused to meet KR Nagar MLA and Kodagu district in-charge Minister SaRa Mahesh before assuming her new charge.
Kavitha had arrived early in the morning to report to the new post. However, she was kept waiting.
If sources in the police department are to be believed, few senior officers reportedly asked her to meet the Mahesh, but she didn’t oblige stating that as per the transfer rules, she need not meet anyone.
Even though City Police Commissioner AS Subramanyeshwara Rao is considered as the tough officer he was the mute spectator to the whole drama, it is said.
At about 11 pm, the drama came to an end as CM HD Kumaraswamy cancelled her transfer order and retained her in the intelligence wing.
