GUWAHATI, February 24, 2018: Anand Kumar Tewari, an IPS officer posted in Assam, has been removed from service after the government found it to be “unsatisfactory”, an official said.
The 1994 batch police officer of the Assam-Meghalaya cadre was removed as he was a “dead wood” due to his “unsatisfactory” service records, the Home Ministry official said.
Anand Kumar Tewari is the sixth IPS officer in two years to be removed.
The performance of the IGP-rank officer was reviewed by a Home Ministry-appointed committee and it found him to be unfit to continue and hence ordered him to go on compulsory retirement.
According to rules, performance review of an all-India service officer is conducted twice – first after the completion of 15 years of qualifying service, and then after 25 years.
