Tripura: Senior IPS Officer Amitabh Ranjan Appointed as New DGP

Guwahati: Amitabh Ranjan, a senior member of the IPS, has been appointed the next Director General of Police (DGP) of Tripura, an official said on Thursday.

Ranjan, an IPS officer from the 1988 batch, is the Delhi IB’s Special Director at the moment.

He will take the place of VS Yadav, whose contract was extended to November 2022. Yadav stepped down in March 2021.

“Consequent upon repatriation from central deputation and in the interest of public service, the Governor is pleased to appoint Amitabh Ranjan as the DGP and head of police force with effect from the date he assumes charge,” a senior official said.

The Cabinet’s Appointments Committee had earlier approved the Ministry of Home Affairs’ request for Amitabh Ranjan, Special Director, IB, to return to his parent cadre on July 18.

Prior to this, Kumar Alok was demoted from Chief Secretary to Director General (DG) of State Institute of Public Administration and Rural Development (SIPARD), a position with little public exposure within the government. He is now on a lengthy leave.

Principal Secretary JK Sinha has been appointed chief secretary in charge.
