Calcutta, June 12: K. Jayaraman was today appointed as the deputy inspector-general (modernisation), six months after he had been sent on compulsory waiting when he was the commissioner of the Siliguri metropolitan police.
Jayaraman was removed as the commissioner in November following the arrest of then Malda district magistrate Godala Kiran Kumar in connection with alleged financial wrongdoing at the Siliguri Jalpaiguri Development Authority.
Jayaraman’s new post was mentioned in an order transferring 54 IPS officers today.
Among the other officers, Dilip Adak, deputy commissioner of police (traffic), has been appointed as the DIG (operations) of CID, a post that has been lying vacant for more than one year.
The post deals with terrorist and Maoist activities, and cyber crimes in the state.
Kiran Kumar had been the chief executive officer of the SJDA when the alleged scam took place.
He was remanded in police custody for three days after the arrest on November 30. The government sent Kiran Kumar also on compulsory waiting.
