“The State government plans to increase the minimum tenure of police officers to two years from one year [at one place of posting], in accordance with the Supreme Court judgment in Prakash Singh Vs Union of India case,” Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy said in Belagavi on Saturday.

This is Mr. Ramalinga Reddy’s first visit to the district after taking charge as Home Minister.

“We are committed to ending political interference in the functioning of the police. We will ensure that postings and transfers of police personnel and officers are handled by the Police Establishment Board, in a non-political manner,” he said.

He was speaking to presspersons after reviewing the work of police officers in the Belagavi range at the office of the Inspector-General of Police.

Mr. Ramalinga Reddy clarified that the State government would bring in an amendment to the existing laws to ensure this change.
