The bureaucracy is abuzz with a likely change of guard in Mumbai Police. Nagpur Police Commissioner K K Pathak (IPS:1983:MH) is expected to replace Rakesh Maria (IPS:1981:MH) shortly. The name of Navi Mumbai Police Commissioner K L Prasad (IPS:1982:MH) had also been in contention for the top job but Maharashtra CM seems to have zeroed down on Pathak’s name who has almost 14 months in hand to continue with the job. Prasad is retiring in April this year only.
Not to mention Pathak, having served in Nagpur (CM’s constituency), would have impressed the CM by his administrative skill and personal liking as well.
