Mehta to be Meghalaya’s new police chief

Shillong : IPS officer Rajiv Mehta, currently the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) chief in New Delhi, was Friday appointed Meghalaya’s police chief, an official said.

The 1981 batch Assam-Meghalaya cadre officer replaces acting Director General of Police Sunil Kumar Jain and is expected to join office Monday.

A home department official said Mehta was selected by the State Security Commission, headed by Chief Minister Mukul Sangma, from a panel of five senior IPS officers of the Assam-Meghalaya cadre.

“The commission selected Mehta as he was found to be the fittest man for the pivotal post,” the official told IANS.
