Pramod Kumar, Reader of Director General of Police (DGP), KP Singh, said, "Navdeep Singh Virk, Gurgaon Police Commissioner, has not been transferred from Gurgaon to Rohtak, He is still the Gurgaon Police Commissioner."

There were reports that orders have been issued by the state government to transfer Virk to Rohtak and replace him with Sandeep Khirawar. District Public Relation Officer (DPRO) Gurgaon, RS Sangwan, also refuted the news and said, "This news of transfer of CP is sheer rumour. There is no such order."

Virk was among the officers seen managing the flood situation in National Highway 8 and other areas. The problem started on Thursday evening following hours of persistent rain in Gurgaon.

Several parts of the city got choked due to water logging leading to massive jams. Among the worst-affected areas was the Hero Honda Chowk where water logging triggered jams on the National Highway 8 that connects Gurgaon to Delhi.
