NAVI MUM­BAI: In a ma­jor reshuf­fle, 18 of­fi­cers, in­clud­ing 11 in­spec­tors and 7 as­sis­tant in­spec­tors from the Navi Mum­bai po­lice, have been trans­ferred, while the city po­lice will get 31 new of­fi­cers -- 10 in­spec­tors and 21 as­sis­tant in­spec­tors.

The new in­spec­tors will take charge within the next cou­ple of days, a se­nior of­fi­cer said.

The trans­fer or­der was re­leased on Tues­day. Some of the trans­ferred of­fi­cers have been work­ing in the city for more than five years.

Push­palata Dighe, the in­charge of city anti-hu­man traf­fick­ing cell has been trans­ferred to state in­tel­li­gence depart­ment (SID) in Mum­bai.

Maya More, who was hold­ing the post of se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor of APMC po­lice sta­tion till a month ago, has been trans­ferred to Gon­dia.

Like­wise, Satish Gaik­wad, the se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor of Kopar Khairane po­lice sta­tion, has been trans­ferred to Nashik.

“There are sev­eral posts ly­ing va­cant in our com­mis­sion­er­ate. There­fore, we got 21 new as­sis­tant in­spec­tors even though only 7 from the city are go­ing out,” said Dilip Sawant, deputy com­mis­sioner of po­lice (crime).

For re­duc­ing crime and im­prov­ing the de­tec­tion rates, the Navi Mum­bai po­lice re­cently opened one more unit of the city crime branch.

Sim­i­larly, an in­de­pen­dent anti-nar­cotic cell and an an­tive­hi­cle theft cell were also opened around two weeks ago.

“The new in­spec­tors will take charge of the new cells. Some of them will also be posted across 20 po­lice sta­tions, the head­quar­ters and the po­lice com­mis­sioner’s of­fice in CBD Be­la­pur,” an­other po­lice of­fi­cer said, on con­di­tion of anonymity as he is not au­tho­rised to speak to the me­dia.
