As soon as the matter came to the fore, Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police (DGP) OP Singh apologised for the error and ordered strict action to be taken against those found guilty.
"It's a matter of deep regret that in today's transfer list of Dy.SP's a cancellation order has been issued for late Dy. SP Satya Narain Singh. Such blunder is unpardonable and I apologise for it as HOD. I'll take strict action and remedial measures for better sync of information," he tweeted.
The list, which was released on Friday, includes names of Ashok Kumar, Surendra Yadav, Kailash Chandra Pandey, and Onkar Yadav, among others.
