Matka operators are having a field day and the sale of gutka has increased manifold. Many innocent people are losing their life. The image of the police has been maligned. Beed district has become Bihar. There is rampant corruption in police transfers. The police are busy collecting haftas. The action of the SP should be probed by senior officials. I want an answer whether the SP will be immediately transferred,’’ he added.
