Earlier it was reported in the media that the panel for appointment of new Director General, Narcotics Control Bureau was rejected by the ACC. As against the earlier buzz ‘Indianmandarins’ reliably learns that the panel for DG, NCB (moved on 27 May 2015 for approval) still stands and may be cleared shortly.
The additional charge of DG, NCB is being held by Ashok Prasad (IPS:1979:AP), the incumbent Secretary Internal Security (MHA) since April 01, 2015.
The post is running vacant since February 01, 2014 after the erstwhile DG, NCB Rajeev Gupta (IPS1980:AM) repatriated to Meghalaya as DGP. Further ADG (NCB) B B Mishra (IPS:1983:AM) held the additional charge of DG till his superannuation on March 31.
