Mukesh Gupta, the Additional Director-General of Police and considered the most “influential and powerful” IPS officer in the State has been removed from the intelligence wing by Chhattisgarh government.
Gupta was heading the intelligence wing apart from the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) and the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB).
However, the ACB unearthed a major scam in the Civil Supplies Department earlier this year and “selective leaks” that were made to the media regarding the scam, put the government on back foot as the allegations of involvement were made against members of the Chief Minister’s family.
The ACB had also indicted senior IAS officer Alok Shukla and Anil Tuteja in the civil supplies scam.
