The 1981 batch RPF cadre official, P S Rawal, was Tuesday handed over the additional charge of DG RPF. Currently, he is DDG RPF for Northeastern Rly, Guwahati. He is also credited with working for the rly board. The PMO is said to have approved his appointment as officiating DG of RPF on March 14.
As first reported by Indianmandarins, there has been a tussle going on between IPS and RPF cadre officials over the post, in which the latter were supported by four major Rly unions.
