Hours after Rakesh Maria was moved to the Home Department as the DG Home Guards, four more police officers who were part of the team investigating the Sheena Bora murder case were transferred. Earlier today, Javed Ahmed replaced Rakesh Maria as the new Mumbai police commissioner. The timing of Maria’s replacement when he was leading the investigation into the case sparked speculation about the reasons behind the decision. However, the government has stated that the decision is purely a procedural one and there is no political reason behind it. Additional Chief Secretary (Home) K P Bakshi said, “There is no question of any connection between Sheena Bora murder probe & Rakesh Maria’s promotion transfer.” “There was no hurry in transferring Maria. It would have been inappropriate to transfer him on September 30, in the middle of the festive season as Ganapati festival, a very important event in Maharashtra would be on at that time. Therefore, we decided to advance the promotion of Maria,” he said.
