Bhubaneswar, Feb 1:
Sarangi was IG, Intelligence until now.
Official sources said the Home department order has been duly approved by the chief minister.
The reason behind the ‘surprise move’could not be ascertained immediately. However, the fact that there is no mention of who would be posted as IG, Intelligence in Sarangi’s place in the government order, suggests that the decision was taken in a hurry.
Sarangi is on leave at the moment, sources said.
Sarangi, known in police circles as ‘tiger’, is considered one of the finest and most effective officers in the state.
