Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has ordered the removal of the recently-appointed Moga SSP Kamaljit Singh Dhillon after receiving the report he had sought earlier this week into some pending inquiries against him. Dhillon has been shifted as AIG (Crime), said an official spokesperson here on Saturday.

The Chief Minister has taken the decision on his removal as inquiries, warranting disciplinary action against him, had been found to be pending, said the spokesperson. The Chief Minister has asked DGP Suresh Arora and the Home Department to immediately take action on the said inquiries, he added.

Dhillon, who had been shifted to Moga as SSP in place of Raj Jit Singh.

GS Toor, an upright officer with extensive experience during various stints as SSP in several districts of the state, has been appointed the new SSP Moga. An IPS officer of the 2004 batch, he is currently AIG Counter Intelligence, Ludhiana.

Author of a book based on his experiences with drug addicts, Toor is known to take a stern view of drug abuse and trading, and has shown his commitment to creating awareness against the menace.

The Chief Minister has, meanwhile, reiterated his zero tolerance towards drug abuse, warning of strict action against anyone found to be complicit in promoting the drug menace in the state. He has directed the DGP and the Home Department to ensure strict investigation into all such charges against any police personnel.
