Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey Retires, Could Contest Assembly Polls
“No correlation between retirement and Sushant Singh Rajput case,” he said.
Outspoken Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey, who was instrumental in the Sushant Singh Rajput case being handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), has taken voluntary retirement. The Bihar Government has already approved his request for voluntary retirement and has even waived off a three-month mandatory cooling-off period, starting speculation that he could contest the upcoming Assembly Polls that are just weeks away now. After his retirement, Pandey said that his decision had nothing to do with the case of Rajput’s death.
While speaking to the media, Pandey said that he would decide on “how best to serve society.” During his interaction with reporters, he also chose to don a saffron scarf, giving one more hint about his possible political ambitions and political leanings. He said, “I am no longer DGP (Director General of Police) as of today. So no government rule applies to me anymore. As for what I will do…people are coming from Buxar, Jehanabad, Begusarai, many other districts…people are coming to me. I will speak to people as to how they want my service and then take a decision.”
