If some top sources are to be believed Surinder Singh (IPS:WB:1980) has been inching closer in the chase for DG, CISF. Arvind Ranjan (IPS:KL:1979), the incumbent DG of CISF, is all set to superannuate on April 30.
Name of some other prospective officers are also doing rounds. Among other prospective names Ashok Prasad (IPS:AP:1979), has only 09 months of residual service. In addition Prasad (SSIS, MHA) is reportedly not keen enough to take it as his top priority.
Next name in contention is Krishna Chaudhary (IPS:BH:1979), currently DG, ITBP. But he too is not very much keen. Reportedly he would rather prefer BSF as his foremost choice which would fall vacant in March 2016. After heading the high altitude boarder guarding forces (ITBP) Chaudhary will remain a logical claimant for BSF, the border guarding security forces in March next year.
