Bengaluru: The Karnataka government has reserved 2 percent of posts in its police force to meritorious sportspersons from the state, an official said on Sunday.

“The state government has recently notified that police recruitment will have 2 percent quota for outstanding sportspersons belonging to the state,” said Karnataka State Reserve Police (KSRP) Additional Director General of Police Alok Kumar in a statement here.

According to the gazette notification on March 3, the special rule will enable top sportspersons to get directly recruited as constables, sub-inspectors and deputy superintendents of police.

Kumar, an IPS officer of the 1994 batch, expressed gratitude to state Home Minister Basavaraj Bommai and state Director General of Police Praveen Sood for the notification, which came after a 12-year gap.
