Three days after he was told by Chhattisgarh government to go on medical leave, Inspector General of Police SRP Kalluri returned to Bastar on Monday, and placed a call to DGP A N Upadhyaya, asking for a fresh posting.

The move puts the government in a tight spot, as it has tried to push the theory that Kalluri was being removed from Bastar for medical reasons, sanctioning him a 90-day leave, with CM Raman Singh saying on record that the senior officer needed to get a kidney transplant. Kalluri though had said that “he was under orders to go on leave”.

His leave from Bastar came at a time when the state government had been pulled up by the NHRC in a meeting on January 30 for human rights excesses.

Asked by The Indian Express to confirm these reports, of his return to Jagdalpur and his call placed to the DGP seeking a new posting as he needed no medical treatment for the moment, the IG replied to the message saying, “Yes.”

With no transfer orders issued thus far, a senior official said that he had not “officially rejoined work thus far”.
