‘Mysuru new to me but will do my best here’

Mysore/Mysuru: Mysuru City Police Commissioner Dr. Chandragupta has been transferred and posted as Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIGP), Western Range, Mangaluru, in the downgraded post.

B. Ramesh, Superintendent of Police (Crime Investigation Department-2) has been appointed as the new Mysuru City Police Commissioner in the downgraded post. Ramesh is a 2009-batch IPS Officer and took charge today at the Police Commissioner’s Office. Dr. Chandragupta formally handed over the charge and Ramesh signed the documents.

Speaking to reporters soon after, Ramesh said that Mysuru was new to him and would do his best here. “This region is new to me and I would like to meet officers and staff to collect more information about the region. Ensuring a good law and order situation and a fear-free society would be my priorities. Will also take stock of the crime situation and take measures to combat criminal activities,” he said.

A 2006-batch IPS Officer, Dr. Chandragupta served as Mysuru’s Police Commissioner for over two years and he had taken charge on Feb. 1, 2020. He successfully implemented the previously unheard of COVID-19 pandemic-related rules and regulations including the stringent lockdown norms.

Apart from the regular duties of ensuring order during VVIP movement including that of the President and the Prime Minister, Dr. Chandragupta played a key role in modernising the Police force and also maintaining a chaos-free traffic movement. He initiated various awareness programmes for the public regarding traffic awareness, crime prevention and also prevention of cybercrimes.

He was instrumental in cracking many sensational cases that made national headlines including the gang rape of an MBA student at the foot of Chamundi Hill, shootout at a jewellery shop in Vidyaranyapuram and the murder case of retired Intelligence Bureau Officer R.N. Kulkarni.

    “”He was instrumental in cracking many sensational cases that made national headlines including the gang rape of an MBA student at the foot of Chamundi Hill, shootout at a jewellery shop in Vidyaranyapuram and the murder case of retired Intelligence Bureau Officer R.N. Kulkarni”
    Chandragupta, the police commissioner was an inefficient moron, in whose charge Mysore’s crime has escalated . Gold chain snatching incidents cases of swindling money through deception, the ever increasing criminal incidents of punishing those who have received the cash through Hawala channel operated by the Malayalee crime gangs located in the Gulf states etc. are too much for this inefficient police commissioner.
    As for his MBA rape case, people knew the identity of the culprits. THE LEADER OF THE ARMED ROBBERY IN THE JEWELLERY STORE, WHICH RESULTED IN AN INNOCENT BY-STANDER DEATH IS STILL AT LARGE.. As for the Kulkarni case, all he had to do is visit Kulkarni’s neighbour and arrest the son. The case is pending in the court, will take years to resolve.
    “Commissioner Dr. Chandragupta has been transferred and posted as Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIGP), Western Range, Mangaluru, in the downgraded post”
    Does not sound like a promotion to him.
    This new police commissioner will face an immense challenge, when Mysore airport gets expanded and as Narendra Modi promised to Malayalee businessmen in the UAE, weekly non-stop Doha-Mysore jet passenger services commence.
    The above UAE Malayalee businessmen are gold smugglers, who are currently smuggling gold to Kerala and and want to expand their business to Mysore. They are the brains behind the increasing violent crimes related to the enforcement of Hawala channel money transactions in Mysore. Th e Malayalee criminals employed by the above UAE crime bosses, operate through Wayanad-Nanjangud -Mysore corridor.
    This police commissioner will fail just like the previous one.
