The appointment of a Police Commissioner is heading for another bacchanal.
Deodath Dulalchan’s name has been submitted by the Police Service Commission (PSC) as the top ranked candidate for the position of Commissioner of Police and the top ranked candidate for the post of Deputy Commissioner. And this is being done in response to his application for the post of Deputy Police Commissioner of Police only. The nomination of Dulalchan which requires confirmation by the House of Representatives is in serious jeopardy. Dulalchan is currently acting deputy Police Commissioner (Operations). The Express understands that unresolved issues involving Dulalchan came before the PSC and were not dealt with.
