“Retirement Has No Links With Sushant Case,” Says Bihar DGP
Gupteshwar Pandey could likely contest Assembly election in state.
Denying rumours, Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey has said that his retirement has nothing to do with the case of Sushant Sing Rajput’s death. The outspoken officer opted for voluntary retirement this week and the Bihar Government immediately accepted it, while also waiving off the mandatory cooling-off period. Speculation is rife that Pandey could contest in the Assembly elections that are slated to be held in the state next month.
During his interaction with reporters today, Pandey 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.” The former Bihar DGP was in the news when demands for the handing the Sushant Singh Rajput case to the CBI were at their peak.
