In a major reshuffle, 63 Police Sub-Inspectors (PSIs) attached to various police stations in Nagpur have been promoted to the rank of Assistant Police Inspectors (APIs). Some of the promoted APIs are likely to be transferred to outer areas. Similarly, 13 APIs are coming to city from outside. The large scale promotions among PSIs this year has brought a wave of happiness as they have been given the higher posts within three years. On the other hand, senior APIs are seen long faced. Some of them, on the condition not to reveal their names, said they were promoted after 5-7 years of duty in police stations.
