Farewell ceremony of Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police (DGP) Sulkhan Singh was organised in Lucknow today.
Sulkhan Singh, a 1980-batch IPS officer, is set to retire by month-end.
Earlier on 27 September , Uttar Pradesh government had sent a proposal to the Central Government for the extension of Singh's tenure by three months.
However, speculation was rife that Sulkhan Singh's tenure will not be extended.
A high-level panel takes the decision on appointment of the new DGP on the chief minister's recommendation.
