Many youth including social activists staged a protest demonstration here against transfer of former IGP traffic Basant Rath and demanded revocation of the order.
The youth assembled in Press Enclave, holding placards that read "revoke transfer order", "Honesty murdered" and raised slogans in favor of the IPS officer.
Social media has been abuzz from past couple of days following the transfer of Rath who was in limelight for his unorthodox steps to streamline the traffic.
"His proactive attitude and dedication had bought a noticeable change in the traffic management of the city", said Mudasir Rasool, a social activist. "His honesty made him odd man out in the system which is the main reason for his transfer."
