Sandhu to head IB, Tripathi RAW
New Delhi, Nov 19: India’s two top intelligence agencies - Intelligence Bureau and Research and Analysis Wing - are set to have a rejig with the appointment of new heads.
Nehchal Sandhu and Sanjeev Tripathi are all set to take charge of IB and R&AW respectively beginning next year and orders in this effect are expected to be issued soon.
While Sandhu will succeed incumbent Rajiv Mathur, who led the country’s internal intelligence agency for two years, Tripathi will take charge from K C Verma, who was brought in to the external intelligence agency after the 26/11 Mumbai attacks. Though Verma’s tenure ends January-end next year, he is expected to be moved out of R&AW to the National Technical Research Organisation as its chief next month.
Sandhu is currently Special Director of IB while Tripathi heads the Aviation Research Centre.
Meanwhile, the high-level panel comprising the Cabinet Secretary, the Chief Vigilance Commissioner, the Secretary, Department of Personnel, and the Home Secretary shortlisted three names for the post of Director CBI and recommended them to the Appointments’ Committee of the Cabinet headed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
The shortlisted names are CBI Special Director A P Singh, National Investigation Agency chief S C Sinha and Director General of CISF N R Das.
The name of the new CBI director is expected to be announced soon as incumbent Ashwini Kumar will be retiring by the end of this month.
