Ex Punjab DGP Dinkar Gupta takes charge as new NIA chief

Former Punjab DGP Dinkar Gupta on Monday took over the charge of a full-fledged Director-General of the National Investigation Agency (NIA)-- the post which was vacant since May last year after the retirement of YC Modi.

The 1987-batch Indian Police Service (IPS) officer of Punjab cadre took over the charge from Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) Director General Kuldiep Singh, a 1986-batch West Bengal cadre IPS officer.

Having a Master's degree in police administration, Gupta's experience as the Director-General of Police (DGP) of Punjab for more than two years from 2019 will come in handy as some terror groups have started raising their ugly head in the state.

Before becoming the Punjab Police chief, Gupta headed a unit where he directly supervised Punjab State Intelligence Wing, State Anti-Terrorist Squad and the Organized Crime Control Unit.

Gupta was removed as the state police chief by the Congress government under Charanjit Singh Channi in October last year and was posted as chairman of Punjab Police Housing Corporation (PPHC).
