Director General of Police K Rajendra Kumar who retired on Saturday is being considered for the post of the Chief Vigilance Commissioner in place of Kuldeep Khoda, who is completing his term as CVC by March-2017.
Rajendra who was being pushed for extension of three more months by the Ministry of Home Affairs for his long experience for dealing with militancy, insurgency and street unrest in his 32-year long association with the state , found the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti uninterested in it .
She , according to sources, however was amenable to the idea of appointing him to a suitable position after his retirement. The Chief Vigilance Commissioner’s post is falling vacant in next three months, he could be considered for that position , the sources privy to the developments , told JKNT.
There was also a proposal to appoint K Rajendra as the Chief Information Commissioner , the head of the state information commission. But that proposal of having a retired police officer to that post is being debated. The balance has tilted, if all goes well, in favour of K Rajendra taking over as next CVC.
It may be mentioned here that 1986 batch IPS officer S P Vaid is taking over as the new DGP of the state police.
