Kamal Pant replaces Bhaskar Rao as new Bengaluru Police Commissioner

The Karnataka government Friday appointed senior IPS officer Kamal Pant as the new Bengaluru City Police Commissioner. The official notification was issued a couple of days before the completion of the one-year tenure of incumbent Commissioner Bhaskar Rao.

Rao was appointed as Bengaluru’s top cop on August 2, 2019.

Incidentally, the newly-appointed Police Commissioner — a 1990 batch Indian Police Service (IPS) officer — took over charge from his batchmate Rao.

B Dayananda, a 1994-batch IPS officer, has now been appointed as the new ADGP (Intelligence), which was Pant’s previous post.

As per the order, Rao is posted until further orders as the Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) of Internal Security Division in Bengaluru. P S Sandhu, who handled the charge, was promoted as Director General of Police (Criminal Investigation Department, Special Units, and Economic Offences) on Thursday.

The Ancient Times

Because we’re journalists, we’re impatient. We want to gather the news as quickly as possible, using any technological resource available. And when we’re as sure of the story as we can be, we want to share it immediately, in whatever way reaches the most people. The Internet didn’t plant these ideas in our heads. We’ve always been this way.
