Dilbagh Singh takes over as new DGP

He will continue to hold charge of DG (Prisons)


Srinagar, Sep 07 (KNS): Dilbag Singh Friday took over as the new Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police after his predecessor S P Vaid was removed on Thursday night.
Singh, a 1987-batch IPS officer from the state, took over as the new police chief at a simple ceremony. He continues to hold the charge of Director-General (Prisons).
Vaid, a 1986-batch IPS officer, was unceremoniously removed as police chief late last night. It was believed that the reason behind the sudden development was continuous friction over interference in the police work by the state's bureaucracy. (KNS)
