VR Chauhan, ad­di­tional com­mis­sioner of po­lice of Navi Mum­bai, has re­cently been pro­moted and trans­ferred to Pune as In­spec­tor Gen­eral of Po­lice (IGP) of wire­less.

Chauhan, who was ear­lier ad­di­tional com­mis­sioner of po­lice in Mum­bai, took over the charges in the satel­lite city in the se­cond week of May, last year. He had re­placed Fateh Singh Patil, who was trans­ferred to Mum­bai for the same post then.

“The pro­mo­tion or­der came early this month and I was re­lieved from Navi Mum­bai on Mon­day,” Chauhan said.

“I worked in Navi Mum­bai for eight months. I en­joyed work­ing with the res­i­dents here. From law and or­der point of view, I can say that Navi Mum­bai is one of the best places I have worked in so far,” he said.

“As the ad­di­tional com­mis­sioner of po­lice, I over­saw traf­fic, crime, ad­min­is­tra­tion and other im­por­tant branches of the depart­ment,” he said.

No of­fi­cer has taken over the charges of ad­di­tional com­mis­sioner of po­lice in the satel­lite city so far.
