Dilemma over new SPG Chief?

The successor of Kode Durga Prasad, former SPG Chief, is expected to be named shortly. It is reliably learnt that Krishan Kumar Sharma’s (IPS:1982:RJ) name is under consideration for appointment as Director, SPG. But still there has been a dilemma over the new SPG Chief. Mutually differing reports in mass-media, recently, have prompted the debate whether Srivastawa (a 1989 batch IP officer) could be asked to head SPG or not?

Till few days back it was being reported that Vivek Srivastawa (the then Jt Dir, IB posted in Patna) would be named as SPG Chief. Now the appointment orders of Vivek Srivastava (IPS:1989:GJ) as IG, SPG ha been issued. But still it is being perceived as if he would be heading the SPG.

In fact the post of SPG Chief was initially meant for IG rank officer but later the post was given to ADG rank IPS officers as well.
