Padmapur SDPO Laxminarayan Panda transferred

Bhubaneswar: Ahead of February 24 by-election at Bijepur assembly constituency in Bargarh district, the Election Commission of India (ECI) today removed Padmapur Sub-Divisional Police Officer (SDPO) Laxminarayan Panda.

The ECI has sought panel of three names from Director General of Police (DGP) to replace Panda. The ECI has cleared the name of Jharsuguda Railway Officer Khirasagar Nayak to succeed Panda.

DGP Dr Rajendra Prasad Sharma said that the incumbent SDPO Laxminarayan Panda has been transferred on the direction of the State Chief Electoral Officer (CEO).

The action came after a delegation of BJP led by party national spokesperson Sambit Patra had lodged a complaint with ECI alleging that the SDPO was working like a political agent of the ruling BJD in by-poll bound Bijepur assembly constituency in Bargarh district.
