The AP government has to appoint a new DGP in the place of Mr Malakondiah who is about to retire. There are two candidates Goutham Savang and R.P. Thakur in the race. Mr Savang will have an edge over others by having a high profile career. The way he had handled the call money case won him laurels from one and all. Moreover, he served as the Police Commissioner, a prestigious post, at United Nations for four years.
AP Government has constituted a committee under the leadership of in-charge Chief Secretary Punetha to select the new DGP. By 29th June the government wanted the list of the top 3 candidates. The suspense continues.
