The Election Commission (EC) had appointed AK Mohanthi as the new Director General of Police.
Earlier, DGP SSP Yadav has been removed by the EC on complaints of violation of the code of conduct. The AP state government has been asked to forward a list of eligible IPS officers one of whom can be appointed as the DGP.
The State Government has forwarded 5 names, three from the state and two on deputation to central government, for consideration.
The MIM party has officially gave a representation to the EC not to appoint AK Mohanthi as DGP. The EC obviously ignored the MIM plea.
AK Mohanthi previously held the posts of Commissioner of Hyderabad and Addl DG, Law and Order.
