PANJIM: Chief minister Digambar Kamat met DGP Aditya Arya twice on Thursday, making it clear that the police first need to implement the transfer orders of the superintendents of police and later grievances raised by the DGP may be heard, said sources.
Arya first met the CM at 10.30am at Kamat's Margao residence, where discussions lasted a few minutes.  He later met the CM at the latter's Secretariat office in the presence of the chief secretary.  Last week, the DGP, unhappy with the manner in which the government issued the transfer orders, asked the government to reconsider the same. He also gave oral instructions to the SPs to continue with their present posting till further orders from him.
The DGP's letter to the government pointed out that though Vijay Singh is the senior-most SP in the Goa police force, he has been posted as SP (anti-narcotics cell) and assistant commandant of IRB. Also, non-cadre officers have been posted at CID South and North, which are cadre posts. Finally, while some officers who have completed three years in office have not been transferred, others who have not finished two years of posting, essential under Supreme Court orders, have been transferred due to political considerations. – TNN
