When it was known in police circles that I had decided to accept Kanwar Pal Singh Gill as my number two in the Punjab police, an IPS batch-mate from Madhya Pradesh phoned to warn me against taking such a step. He was sure that KPS would work to dislodge me from my perch. That did not matter to me, because I had not sought the appointment in the first place, and was not enamoured of it. But KPS did finally succeed in leading the police force of Punjab, the state from which his family hailed.
