Odisha government, in a major reshuffle, appointed IPS officer Abhay as Director General of Police, the head of Odisha Police. Abhay replaced current DGP BK Sharma against whom an enquiry was initiated just hours before the declaration.
Likewise, Satyajit Mohanty has been posted as Director of Intelligence and will remain in-charge DGP till Abhay joins. While BK Sharma has been posted as OSD of the Home Department, Sunil Ray will be the new Director of Fire Services and Home Guards.
