NEW DELHI:  Special CP (Vigilance), Balaji Srivastava will hold the additional charge of Commissioner of Police of Delhi, after the retirement of SN Shrivastava until further orders.

The current Commissioner of Police will retire on June 30. Balaji is an 1985 IPS officer.

“Consequent upon the suppernuation of SN Shrivastava (AGMUT 1985), Commissioner of Police, Delhi, Balaji Srivastava will hold the additional charges of Commissioner of Police, Delhi, in addition to his regular charge until further appointment of a regular incumbent or until further orders, whichever earlier,” read an order issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs.
