“There are hundreds of SP vacancies in the department still they don’t bother for our posting.” A senior officer awaiting adjustment told KNS wishing not to be named. He said that 74 more Deputy Superintendent of Police had already completed their training and were still waiting their adjustment. Another senior officer told KNS that there were 13 Armed Police battalions who were headless and nothing was done to adjust these promotes there.
