Indianmandarins has reliably learnt that Rajiv Rai Bhatnagar (IPS:1983:UP) may shortly be appointed as Director General of Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). The post fell vacant in the first week of February, 2015 when the Central government relieved Rajiv Mehta (IPS:19981:AM) to move on as Meghalaya DGP.
NCB DDG B B Mishra (IPS:1983:AM) further held the additional charge of DG between February and March 2015. From April 01, 2015 the additional charge of DG NCB was given to Ashok Prasad (IPS:1979:AP), Special Secretary Internal Security, MHA.
While Prasad’s retirement is only a week away, the appointment of a new DG has acquired urgency. So all fingers are crossed.
