Amid an ongoing tussle with Vij, the Director General of Police has sought repatriation citing ‘career considerations and family requirements’.
Vij told the media that Yadava’s application to relieve him has been accepted and he has been asked to continue till a new appointment is made.
Vij asked the Home Secretary to send a panel of Indian Police Service officers who had completed 30 years of service to the Union Public Service Commission for the selection of a new DGP.
Despite the reservations of the Home Minister, DGP Yadava, who was due to return to central deputation, in March got a one-year extension to continue in the state.
The state had sought a one-year extension of his tenure.
On deputation from the IB to his parent cadre, Yadava was appointed for a two-year term beginning February 2019.
