It was learnt that the mass redeployment of top conal officers and heads of sections was in line with the ongoing reforms in the commission.

A source, who spoke  in confidence, said: “The government has effected another shake up in line with the ongoing overhauling of the system. A generation of detectives is affected including zonal officers and heads of sections.

Our fears border on the fact that some high-profile cases might suffer because investigation and trial of suspects may have to start afresh.”
