Javeed Ahmed appointed new Uttar Pradesh DGP

Uttar Pradesh government appointed 1984 batch IPS officer S Javeed Ahmed as the new Director General of Police (DGP). Javeed Ahmed who was posted as DG Railways has been made the new DGP of the state, Principal Secretary Home Devashish Panda said. Talking to media after his appointment, Javeed Ahmed said he would lead the force with full honesty and dedication.
There was a race among IPS officers for the top post after Yadav’s retirement. The officers played all the cards - caste, religion, loyalty to the ruling party, experience as well as closeness to the family members of the ruling Yadav family - to outdo each other for the coveted post. No consensus could be reached even after several rounds of meetings. Suspense continued till late on Thursday night as home department officers remained in the office awaiting finalisation of the new DGP.
