Addressing presspersons here, Mr. Kharge said the STF Chief, Jyotiprakash Mirji, whose transfer orders were cancelled after the official requested the Government to continue him in the post, would remain in charge of the STF operations.
On the reported reluctance on the part of some senior officials to take up assignment in the STF, Mr. Kharge said that there were officers such as the Chamarajanagar Superintendent of Police, Madhukar Shetty, and Mr. Mirji, who wanted to be posted in the task force.
To a question, Mr. Kharge said that the Government was considering the offer made by a company based in Israel to supply the latest equipment in the operations against Veerappan. A team of senior officials from the Israeli company visited Bangalore recently and exhibited the usefulness of electronic equipment to track down criminals such as Veerappan.
He said senior officials of the Government and scientists from premier institutions, who witnessed the demonstration, were impressed by the effectiveness of the equipment. Soon, another team from the Israeli company would visit the State to finalise the cost and other details.
The Government would take a decision on purchasing the equipment based on the advice of experts in the field and the financial implications.
