Shivanand Jha IPS appointed Gujarat DGP
Shri Shivanand Jha IPS (Gujarat 1983 ) presently DG, CID (Intelligence) Gujarat Police, has been appointed as Director General of Police (DGP) Government of Gujarat. Shri Jha, who was heading the CID (Intelligence) as its DGP, was appointed to the top post after in-charge DGP Pramod Kumar retired. Shri Kumar himself followed another in-charge DGP, Geeta Johri, who retired after serving on the post for a month.
A petition in the Supreme Court by former state DGP Julio Ribeiro had led to the state government revoking the appointment of Pandey, following which Johri was appointed in November last year.
Jha was also a member of the Supreme Court-appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe the 2002 riots and served as the police commissioner of Ahmedabad and Surat.
