Mumbai, Mar 25 (ANI): The Maharashtra Government on Thursday undertook wholesale changes in the Mumbai Police force. It transferred Additional Director General K P Raghuvanshi from the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) to the Law and Order Department.

Raghuvanshi's transfer is being attributed to his going public on information related to terror suspects.

Joint Police Commissioner of Crime Rakesh Maria is expected to take over as the state's new ATS chief.

Joint Police Commissioner (Law and Order) Himanshu Roy is likely to replace Maria as Joint Police Commissioner of Crime.

Sources said Maria met Maharashtra Home Minister R R Patil after the reshuffle.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan had earlier said he was aware that the Central Government was unhappy with the way certain information was given away soon after the arrests.

Raghuvanshi was appointed ATS chief on June 11, 2009 after Hemant Karkare had lost his life in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks. (ANI)
