After making a rare achievement of facilitating police commissionerate system in Uttar Pradesh, Director General of Police OP Singh, who is set to retire this month, is likely to get a reward from Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in the form of three months’ extension.

Sources said that though the hunt for the top UP cop had started, but the state government surprised everyone when it sent a file to the Department of Personal and Training under Union Ministry of Home Affairs in New Delhi, recommending a three-month extension to DGP OP Singh.

Senior officers were not ready to speak on the issue.

Singh, is set to retire on January 31.

Earlier, sources had said that OP Singh, an IPS officer of 1983 batch, was going to complete two-year tenure on coming January 23 just before his retirement and was likely to be appointed as new chief information commissioner of the State.

Officers from 1984 batch till 1988 were in race for the top UP cop’s post.
