PANJIM: In an apparent show of its authority, the government by a letter dispatched on Wednesday directed the state Director-General of Police, Dr Aditya Arya to implement its order effecting transfer of nine officials in the rank of the superintendent of police, issued last week.
The government turned down the request of the DGP for making changes in the transfer order and directed the state police chief to implement it at earliest, without making any change. The DGP had desired changes in the transfer order.
Though the order of transfer of senior police officials was issued on July 13 it was not implemented as the DGP, who had gone on leave, had asked officials not to assume their new places of posting till he returned to the state and sorted out the matter with the government.
Dr Arya said on Thursday evening that he was yet to see the letter sent to him by the government but has heard about it. He said that if the government wanted that its order should be implemented the way it was issued than he would abide by the government decision. “We will implement the order as desired by the government,” he said adding that the officials would be directed accordingly to take up their new places of posting.
The government had by the order posted Mr Vijay Singh, IPS, who was awaiting posting, as SP of anti-narcotics cell, while Mr Arvind Gawas SP (traffic), was given the full-time charge of the post of SP (North), a post he was handling in addition to his own duties.
Similarly, Mr Shekhar Prabhudessai, principal, Police Training School, Valpoi, who was also handling the charge of special branch and wireless was posted as SP (headquarters), in place of Mr Vishram Borkar, who was shifted as SP PTS, Valpoi. Mr Tony Fernandes SP, (immigration/security) was posted as SP (coastal security) in place of Mr Omprakash Kurtarkar, who was made SP (Konkan Railway/tourist police).
The government had also effected transfer of Mr Jose Allen Fred De Sa, SP (South), and posted him as SP (immigration and security), while Mr Vaman Tari SP (tourist police/Konkan Railway) was made SP (South). Mr Atmaram Deshpande (SP SB/wireless) has been posted SP (traffic).

I think most Goans would prefer if the Government took a tough stand on corrupt Officers.
By transferring some of these Officers ,it is just shifting DIRT, from one place to another.
Having completed their infestation or one area , they are now transferred to infest another area.
I think, if most Goan Polceman were investigated, about 3/4 (three quarters) of them would be seen to have been either corrupt of have committed a crime.
The Public have lost faith in Goa Police.They are more famous & well known for collecting Haftas and black money.
Most of the Cops currently suspended, do not have to pray to get their jiobs back.
In due course the Goa Government and in-house inquirys will re-instate them.
