On November 30, Datta Padsalgikar was given an extension as the Director General of Police (DGP) of Maharashtra. Due to which, Adv. R.R. Tripathi has filed a plea in Bombay High Court against the reappointment and extension of the former DGP in Maharashtra.

He stated that extension displays the biased decision by the state government. Therefore, a plea against the extension has been filed.

Padsalgikar was supposed to retire on August 31, 2018, but he received a three-month extension and served as the DGP till November 30, 2018. However, just before his retirement on Friday, a circular was passed as per which, he received an extension for three months on Thursday.

As per a senior official, the Chief Minister himself had demanded the extension of Padsalgikar as the DGP. Had he not received an extension, Mumbai Police Commissioner Subodh Kumar would have been the DGP.
