It said the FPB will be headed by a Senior Superintendent of Police and include one Superintendent of Police and two Deputy Superintendents of Police.

In a separate order, the home department has also given its assent to the creation of additional manpower of 50 posts in different categories for police headquarters.

The new posts include one Superintendent of police and two deputy superintendents of police, it said.
