Bengaluru, Mar 18: A day after an IPS officer took to Facebook asking the Mysuru-Kodagu MP, Pratap Simha, not to politicise police postings, she claimed that the social networking site had removed her post.

The parliamentarian’s post suggested that senior and sincere officers were opting for Central deputation as they “failed” to get important postings in the state. In her response, Roopa appealed to Simha not to politicise police postings.

“I have always spoken up for policemen. I stood by DySP Kallappa Handibag when he was being projected as a corrupt officer following his suicide. I supported constables when they tried to go on mass leave seeking fulfilment of their long-pending demands,” Simha said. The IPS officer insisted that her Facebook post was “issue-based” and that she had “nothing personal” against the MP.
