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.
