The two-year contract of Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Heman Jangi in the police force expired on Friday, June 3 and was renewed for another year. The Prime Minister and Minister of Home Affairs, Pravind Jugnauth, granted the contract for a third consecutive year to the former head of the Central Criminal Investigation Department (CCID).
Heman Jangi had retired from the police force as the boss of the CCID in March 2020. However, he returned to the Central Barracks in June of the same year after being awarded a two-year contract to take over the management of the department.
When Mario Nobin left the police force as Commissioner of Police, his name had been mentioned as one of the contenders for the position. However, it was Khemraj Servansing who was chosen to head the police force. The latter was replaced by Anil Kumar Dip, after his retirement on Tuesday, August 3, 2021.
The renewal of DCP Jangi’s contract has been the subject of various comments within the police force, especially within his own department.
