Thane, Feb 9 (PTI) There are around 20,000 vacancies in the Maharashtra police force, state director general of police Hemant Nagrale has said.

Nagrale was speaking to reporters at Mira-Bhayander near here on Monday.

These vacancies will be filled up once the department takes up recruitment that was due in 2019 and 2020, he said.

There is a shortage of staff in the newly-formed Mira Bhayander Vasai Virar police commissionerate too, he conceded.

A committee has been formed under an Additional Police Commissioner to review the methodology to fill up the vacancies in the district police, he said.

The committee will chalk out a plan in the next 15 days, he said. PTI COR KRK KRK
