New Delhi, Feb 28 (TIWN) The Centre on Friday appointed senior IPS officer S.N. Srivastava as the new Commissioner of Delhi Police.

Before taking over law and order in the national capital, Srivastava was posted as Additional Director General in CRPF.  He is the senior-most officer of AGMUT cadre and a batchmate of serving Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik, who will be retiring in four days.  The Union Home Ministry has brought in Srivastava to contain the law and order crisis in the national capital. 

The Ministry found that the serving officers were unable to control the situation which is deteriorating by the day.  Patnaik was given an extension of one month which will end on February 29. Srivastava is likely to become the next Delhi Police Commissioner.  The move comes at a time when Delhi Police are facing one of the biggest crises ever with clashes between pro and anti-CAA protesters claiming 18 lives and injuring 180 others in North-East Delhi.
