Four central police organisations functioning without regular chiefs

By ET News

Four central police organisations are functioning without regular heads for varied lengths of time as the government has not appointed their full-time chiefs.

The latest organisation to come under this category is the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) as its chief Rajesh Ranjan is set to retire this month-end and the Union home ministry has given the “additional charge” of the post to SSB director general Kumar Rajesh Chandra “till the joining of regular DG, CISF or untill further orders, whichever is earlier” as per an order issued on November 26.

Similarly, the charge of the federal counter-terrorist force NSG, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) and the central police think tank — Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPRD) — is being rendered in additional capacities by various Indian Police Service (IPS) officers.

Indo-Tibetan Border Police chief S S Deswal is handling the “additional charge” of the National Security Guard since incumbent A K Singh retired on September 30.
