EC removes senior Bengal police officer a day after announcing poll dates

TimesNowNews

Kolkata: A day after announcing the dates for assembly polls in West Bengal, the Election Commission on Saturday removed Additional Director General of Police (Law and order) Jawed Shamim and brought in Jag Mohan in his place, an official order said. Shamim, a 1995-batch IPS officer, will replace Mohan as the DG Fire Services in the rank of ADG, the chief electoral officer (CEO) of the state said in the order.

The shuffle came hours after a BJP delegation, which included MPs Swapan Dasgupta and Arjun Singh, met CEO Ariz Aftab and urged him to remove "biased" police officers from election duty.
