The Election Commission has received a proposal from the Public Security Division of the Home Minis-try to transfer the Officers-in-Charge (OCs) of 338 police stations ahead of the upcoming national elec-tion slated for January 07 next.
EC additional secretary Ashok Kumar Debnath said the EC received the proposal on Wednesday. “But the EC has not approved it yet,” he said.
Earlier, the EC asked the government to transfer all Upazila Nirbahi Officers (UNOs) and Officers-in-Charge (OC) of police stations in phases to conduct the 12th parliamentary elections in a fair manner.
As per the EC’s directives, the Public Security Division sent the proposal to transfer 338 OCs in the first phase.
The commission has already approved the transfer of 47 UNOs in the first phase after the Public Admin-istration Ministry sent a proposal in this regard. Now the move to transfer 20 more UNOs is awaiting EC’s approval.
