DGP BIhar Gupteshwar Pandey takes voluntary retirement

#BIHAR: Director General of Police (DGP) Bihar Gupteshwar Pandey has sought early retirement from services and state Governor Phagu Chauhan has reportedly accepted his resignation.

The development comes ahead of Assembly poll in Bihar scheduled to be held in October-November.

Gupteshwar Pandey, a 1987 batch IPS officer of Bihar cadre, had recently made headlines during investigation into Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case.

Pandey was openly critical of Mumbai Police in the late actor’s death case. He had also sparked a controversy when he said that actor Rhea Chakraborty didn’t have the “stature” to comment on Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
