The Chhattisgarh government on Wednesday made a major reshuffle in the police department and transferred 44 Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) rank officers.

The order was passed by the Chhattisgarh Home Affairs Department. The mega reshuffle also includes the transfer of ASP Raipur.

After the transfer, State Police Service officer Sukhnandan Rathore has been appointed as the new ASP city Raipur. He was earlier heading Anti-terrorist Squad (ATS) in Chhattisgarh Police Headquarters as ASP.

Meanwhile, the opposition alleged that bulk transfers are the outcome of the incompetence of the Baghel government in the context of maintenance of law and order situation in the state.

"The state government has recently made a major reshuffle of IPS rank officers and now again made a bulk transfer of ASP rank officers shows that the Congress government is feeling incompetent over the maintenance of law and order situation in the state," BJP leader Vishnu Deo Sai alleged.

A high-level delegation of BJP leaders is also going to meet the governor on Thursday over the maintenance of the law and order situation in the state and the increased crime graph against women.

BJP alleged that the state was ranked sixth in the country over the increasing number of sexual assault cases.
