Delhi rape fallout: DCP East transferred to PM Security

New Delhi: Nearly two weeks after the horrific Delhi rape, the Deputy Commissioner of Police, East, has been shunted out. DCP Prabhakar has now been transferred to PM Security.

The move comes a day after the vigilance department admitted that the SHO at Gandhi Nagar police station had tried to pay off the survivor's family.

Prabhakar, a 2003-batch IPS officer, has been replaced by Ajay Kumar, an IPS officer of 2001 batch who was handling the PM Security.

Chhaya Sharma, a 1999-batch officer who was heading South Delhi district as its Deputy Commissioner of Police, was transfered to Mizoram. DCP (Outer) BS Jaiswal, a 2001 batch officer, replaces her. Sharma had headed the South district when the gangrape of a 23-year-old woman in a moving bus on December 16, 2012, took place.

A senior police official said the transfer of Prabhakar came against the backdrop of the rape incident and it was "obvious". On Sharma's transfer, the official said AGMU cadre officers have to serve outside Delhi also and her posting to Mizoram was due.
