Superintendent of Police Sandeep Patil has been transferred from Belgaum to Mandya.
Sandeep Patil has assumed office on September 2, 2010 and he came in place of Sonia Narang.
Koushalendra Kumar will be the new SP of Belgaum earlier he was SP of Mandya and he is a IPS officer of 2005 batch.
The 13 odd months he worked in Belgaum he had his own aura of working and had launched many new initiatives to get the Police closer to the public at large.
His meeting for taking up grievances from the public was a great hit, where he met the public sought their complaints and ordered the same to be solved immediately.
He also started the Facebook page for Traffic and his way of managing the law and order situation during his time was really admirable. Any major incident of communal violence was not reported during his time.
There was talk in the town that a MLA was putting pressure for the transfer of Sandeep Patil and same have been successful this time, an earlier attempt for his transfer had been failed.
We wish Sandeep Patil all the best and may his work speak rather than anything.
